Yahoo, Google pulls pregnancy centers’ ad, NARAL targets Bing and Ask next

Google and Yahoo have removed pro-life ads promoting the services of Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPC) across the nation. According to World Magazine NARAL Pro-Choice America and UltraViolet pressured Google and Yahoo to yank the CPC advertisements.

“Yahoo is throwing women to the wolves on this issue,” Nita Chaudhary said in a statement, co-founder of UltraViolet. “Desperate women seeking help are being directed by Yahoo to predatory centers where they will face harassment, aggression, and outright lies about their health and safety, and that is unacceptable. Yahoo should remove these ads immediately.”

NARAL and UltraViolet argue the CPC ads are “deceptive” and violate the truth in advertising policies of both Google and Yahoo as the target women seeking an abortion.

A statement on NARAL’s website claims: “When you search for ‘abortion clinics’ on Yahoo, the majority of ads that show up are funded by anti-choice groups! We’re joining with UltraViolet to call on Yahoo to follow Google’s lead and take down ads that intentionally lie to women facing an unplanned pregnancy.”

So, who are NARAL and what is their mission: “NARAL today seeks to promote the legalization of taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand, and to defeat all efforts to limit access to abortion in any way. Toward these ends, the organization mobilizes pro-choice activists nationwide, lobbies on behalf of pro-choice legislation at the state and federal levels, and works vigorously—via advertising campaigns, education initiatives, and get-out-the-vote drives—to elect pro-choice candidates across the United States. ”

“The problem that Google, Yahoo, and others that acquiesce to such pressure, they show their biases to one side of the issue,” said Susan Michelle Tyrell, a pro-life advocate who was rescued by Catholic nuns.  “The fact remains that abortion clinics lure unsuspecting, frightened women through their doors daily with the promise of help in time of crisis.”

NARAL is replacing Planned Parenthood as the main player in getting taxpayer funded abortions, stopping pro-life advertising and lobbying political officials to remove any and all limitations on abortion.
