In areas where abortion rights are under threat, confusing labels and a lack of policing by Google means misleading — and sometimes flat-out wrong — Google Maps results are common, a VICE News analysis found. Users who search Maps for abortion clinics will often be directed to centers that do not offer or refer patients for abortions, political groups that oppose abortion rights, and, in one case, a monument to “unborn” children.

  1. This is about google selling ‘adwords’. The right to lifers have bought the words and therefore control the links that those words lead to. Feminists and prochoice groups would have to go into a bidding war with the right to lifers and xtians to try and get the addresses for abortion clinics to be accurately linked. Google is just profiteering from anyone who will pay to have any word lead to a selected site by whoever pays.
