Google is cracking down on search results for pro-life crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) amid pressure from Democrats following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.
Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., boasted on Twitter that Google is "taking action" against CPCs following his June letter with Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich., and 19 other Democrats.
"Back in June @RepSlotkin and I wrote to @Google urging them to improve their search results and prevent users that search for abortion clinics and services from being misled," Warner tweeted. "Today I received a response from Google and am happy to report that they're taking action.
"Soon, those who search for ‘abortion clinics near me’ will only see facilities that have been verified to provide abortions in the local search box on Google, meaning that far fewer women will be mistakenly led to ‘crisis pregnancy centers’ that often provide misinformation," he continued. "Additionally, as our letter requested, Google says results for searches such as ‘abortion clinics’ will ‘be clearly labeled as to whether the facility provides abortions.'"
