Google Blocks Huge Abortion Biz From Advertising Abortions

At least for now, a major abortion chain in Australia has been banned from advertising on Google.

Tech Times reports the powerful search engine blocked MSI Australia from advertising on its platform Dec. 3. Allegedly, the abortion chain violated a local Australian law that prohibits the promotion of abortion drugs.

“We have longstanding policies that govern abortion-related ads on Google’s platforms,” a spokesperson for the company said in a statement. “Abortion advertisements can run in Australia as long as the advertiser is certified. However, under local legal requirements, abortion-inducing drugs are not allowed to be marketed or promoted.”

MSI Australia is part of the international abortion chain MSI Reproductive Choices, formerly Marie Stopes International.

According to its 2020 annual report, one of its key goals is to expand abortions, especially through telemedicine. This means mailing or delivering abortion drugs to mothers who may never see a doctor in person before aborting her unborn baby at home – a practice that puts both her and unborn baby’s lives at risk.

Google believes MSI Australia is promoting abortion drugs on its website in violation of the law and its policies, according to The Guardian.

The report continues:

The spokesperson said a review had identified wording on the MSI website that might go against the rules that will need to be updated before ads can return.

“After reviewing the ads in question, we are working intently with the advertiser to clarify some minor amendments that will enable them to run policy compliant ads again as soon as possible.”

A MSI Australia spokesperson said Google is misinterpreting the law, and the advertising block is “restricting the ability of people to find accurate and compassionate information about abortion.”

However, abortion is not compassionate or safe, and the abortion drugs at the center of the ban are especially dangerous. Studies indicate that abortion drugs are not safe for mothers or their unborn babies, especially when taken without a doctor’s supervision.

Even a 2019 report from MSI Australia shows the complication rate for abortion drugs is more than twice as high as for surgical abortions. Yet, many abortion activists claim abortion drugs are safe for women to take at home without any direct medical supervision.

Based in England, MSI International works in 37 countries across the world, aborting unborn babies and providing contraception and other sexual health services. One of its stated goals is to expand abortions world-wide, and it lobbies governments to do so through laws and policies.

The abortion chain reported 2.8 million abortions and post-abortion services worldwide in 2020, down from 4.6 million in 2019.

In 2021, MSI closed four abortion facilities in Australia because of financial constraints, suggesting its abortion numbers there are down.

The abortion chain has been the subject of numerous scandals in recent years involving botched and coerced abortions and other safety violations. In 2016, British health authorities discovered such alarming health problems inside its British facilities that the government temporarily shut down its abortion operations.
