Pro-life group Live Action said this week that tech giant Google had banned the organization's advertisements at the behest of pro-choice advocates.
Live Action – one of, if not the largest, pro-life groups in the world – said in a press release that Google moved on Tuesday to "de-platform Live Action and other pro-life partners from Google ads in a perverse demonstration of big tech's aggressive censorship of life saving messages."
Live Action founder and president Lila Rose said this in the release:
In a dramatic and unprecedented move, Google has sided squarely with extremist pro-abortion political ideology, banning the pro-life counterpoint and life-saving information from being promoted on their platform. They aren't hiding their bias anymore: Google's censorship baldly reveals that the corporation is in the pocket of the abortion industry. By restricting scientific information related to abortion pill reversal and other life-saving options, while accepting paid ads promoting life-ending abortions, Google has chosen to operate by an outrageously dishonest and blatant double standard. The consequence is devastating – more women and girls will be marketed abortions through Google platforms, without also being offered life-affirming options.
Google disingenuously cites ‘unreliable claims' as their reason to ban the promotion of Abortion Pill Reversal, but has obviously failed to understand the FDA-approved treatment that the reversal technology uses. Live Action and pro-life medical professionals across the country are proud to promote the Abortion Pill Reversal regimen, which involves an FDA-approved, bioidentical pregnancy hormone called progesterone that has been used for dozens of years to prevent miscarriage and has already saved thousands of lives.
According to Western Journal, the ban came after a hit piece from the Daily Beast:
The bans came after the Daily Beast ran a hit piece on Live Action's ads, demanding that Google take action against them. In the piece, published Tuesday, the Daily Beast's "gender reporter" called the "abortion reversal" treatment promoted by Live Action "unproven" and "potentially dangerous."
"The tech monopolies that have so much control over our information consumption and our daily lives are so tied in with the radical left that they work to restrict informed consent and censor life-saving options in order to protect the billion-dollar abortion industry," Rose argued in the release.
"It's anti-choice and morally wrong," she added.
If you were still wondering what side Google and Big Tech take in the culture war when it comes to the lives of unborn children, you don't need to wonder any more.
