Pro-life group says Google engaging in censorship

Live Action says that their anti-abortion ads have been banned.

Live Action, a pro-life activist group, says that are being censored by Google.

In a press release, Live Action’s president, Lila Rose, said that Google has ceased to run the group’s pro-life advertisements.

“At the request of abortion activists, Google has just BANNED all of Live Action’s pro-life ads, including those promoting the Abortion Pill Reversal treatment, a resource that has saved 2,500 children to date,” reads the release.

The ads had been running for the past four months before Google refused to allow them to run, she said, adding that advertising for abortion services continues to be permitted.

“Google has sided squarely with extremist pro-abortion political ideology, banning the pro-life counterpoint and life-saving information from being promoted on their platform.

 “This is a blatant, political double standard: Google is ok with ads promoting life-ending drugs, but not life-saving treatments,” said Rose.

Live Action also noted that Google has refused to run ads promoting their “Baby Olivia” video, an animated depiction of human development in the womb (see video below), citing “unreliable claims.”
