On August 23, Yelp published a notice explaining a new consumer warning recently placed on all pro-life pregnancy centers. Yelp’s explanation: “It’s well-reported that crisis pregnancy centers do not offer abortion services, and it’s been shown that many provide misleading information…” After pressure from federal legislators and NY Attorney General Letitia James, Google followed suit. In addition, on or around September 2nd, Google deployed a two-pronged approach to control the information available to women facing unplanned pregnancy by 1) removing pro-life pregnancy centers from Google Maps, and 2) elevating abortion giant Planned Parenthood to the first result in all unplanned pregnancy-related organic search results, while re-emphasizing their own consumer warning placed on pro-life organizations. Google’s move gives millions of dollars in free advertising to Planned Parenthood’s abortion business while eliminating their only competitors, pro-life pregnancy centers.
These actions by big tech, fearing a reversal of Roe v Wade allowing states to shut down abortion businesses, seem to be the result of a concerted effort to vilify pro-life pregnancy centers. Earlier in the Spring, CompassCare, a medical network of pro-life pregnancy centers, was hit by a one-star spamming campaign, triggering Google to remove all of CompassCare’s listings from Google Maps and searches. At the same time, Planned Parenthood was promoting a website doxing pro-life pregnancy centers, labeling them as “fake clinics,” and calling on pro-abortion supporters to leave fake 1-star reviews on Google. Jane’s Revenge—the pro-abortion terrorist group claiming responsibility for the brutal firebombing of CompassCare’s Buffalo medical office—21 Federal Legislators, the president of NARAL, Sen. Warren, and others have all used “Fake clinic/center” language to defame pro-life organizations. Additional coordinated language is being used by The New York Times, NY Attorney General, MA Attorney General, Alphabet Workers Union, Yelp, Google, and others all accusing pro-life organizations of misleading women simply seeking information and resources in the unplanned pregnancy search engine space.
Rev. Jim Harden, CEO of CompassCare, a network of medical pro-life pregnancy centers—one of which was firebombed in Buffalo—said, “Is it possible that pro-abortion politicians are colluding with big tech to suppress the abortion industry’s only competition? While the billion-dollar abortion industry traffics only in abortion, pro-life pregnancy centers provide for the unmet health and resource needs of women across the nation by offering ethical medical care and comprehensive community support—all for free.”
While zero arrests have been made in over 50 cases of vandalism and arson against pro-life pregnancy centers nationwide, big tech and pro-abortion politicians seem to be in alignment with pro-abortion terrorists, seeking to wipe pro-life organizations like CompassCare off the map, fomenting physical violence, legislative attacks, and monopoly level censorship.
Rev. Harden went on to say, “Situations like this are exactly why there are anti-trust laws, RICOH, FACE, and anti-defamation laws. There is a legal team of over 30 people exploring the mounting criminal acts perpetrated against pro-life organizations like CompassCare. Pro-life people are being treated like second class citizens simply because we believe all people are made in the image of God and deserve to be blessed and protected, both mother and child. Apparently, Google and pro-abortion extremists believe women should have no choice but abortion.”
Help CompassCare expand to reach and serve even more women seriously considering abortion in NY and across the United States.
