(The American Conservative) Apparently, Google’s algorithm is sometimes pro-life, at least when it comes to poorer mothers. According to a recent report in the Guardian, mothers searching for information about abortion clinics received different results depending on their financial background. While the top results for the wealthier users directed them to abortion providers, the top results for poorer users were for pregnancy resource centers.

This discovery led to representatives of the abortion industry charging Google with spreading misinformation and deliberately inhibiting poorer mothers from aborting their children. Furthermore, they accuse pregnancy resource centers of fraud for claiming to help pregnant mothers by means other than abortion. Evidently, the extra scroll on the search results would critically delay poor mothers who only have so much time to abort their babies, particularly in red states that restrict abortion to the first weeks of pregnancy.

Of course, all of this is part and parcel of the abortion industry’s campaign to vilify pregnancy centers and encourage pro-abortion terrorism. With last year’s reversal of Roe v. Wade, abortion providers have gone on the offensive against potential competitors who threaten their bottom line. And while the rhetoric of pro-abortionists speaks of empowering women, no one should see this language as anything other than a fig leaf covering up their driving concern: maximizing profit.
