House Democrats have asked Google to restrict searches for abortion clinics from giving results and adverts for anti-abortion clinics, arguing that false results on where to have an abortion might put women’s health at risk.
Representatives Mark Warner and Elissa Slotkin argued in a letter to Google CEO Sundar Pichai on Friday that the company should label search results so that it is clear whether a clinic in its results actually provides abortions if it does not prevent anti-abortion clinics from appearing in Google Search results and Maps. The letter was signed by more than 20 lawmakers.
Anti-abortion “crisis pregnancy clinics” are showing up in some people’s Google searches for information on ending pregnancies.
Several Democratic members of Congress have requested Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai to address concerns about Google search and map results for abortion information including “anti-abortion phony clinics,” according to USA Today.
Lawmakers in the United States have asked Google to address the issue of misinformation about abortion in its search results.
Legislators from throughout the United States have urged Google to improve search results that direct pregnant women to anti-abortion “crisis pregnancy clinics.”
The CEO of Google parent Alphabet, Sundar Pichai, was asked in a letter written Friday by 14 senators and seven representatives to address Alphabet’s handling of “anti-abortion sham clinics or crisis pregnancy centers.”
Senator Mark Warner of Virginia and Representative Elissa Slotkin of Michigan said in a letter that if Google must continue to offer these deceptive results, “the results should, at the very least, be accurately labeled.”
All of the signers of the letter, which was first reported on by Reuters, are Democrat members of Congress.
Requests for a response from Warner and Slotkin went unanswered.
Asked about the letter, Google said it couldn’t comment, but it did discuss search results in general.
