17 Republican AGs DEMAND Google Not Censor Pro-Life Clinics

A group of Republican attorneys general are warning Google of potential legal action if the tech company buckles to leftist pro-abortion pressure to target pro-lifers.

Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares and Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron are leading a group of 17 Republican attorneys general across the U.S. who are uniting against Google’s reported  censorship of pro-life center search results. 

Democrat lawmakers and the leftist Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) have demanded that Google sic its activist censors against pro-lifers. The attorneys general warned Google of potential legal action in the letter, as Daily Wire reported. The pro-abortion leftists have called pregnancy centers “anti-abortion fake clinics.

The letter noted that some politicians now “seek to wield Google’s immense market power by pressuring the company to discriminate against pro-life crisis pregnancy centers.” Google’s influence and reach would make pro-abortion censorship a “grave assault on the principle of free speech,” the attorneys general wrote.

“As the chief legal officers of our respective States, we the undersigned Attorneys General are extremely troubled by this gallingly un-American political pressure,” the attorneys general said in the letter.

The attorneys general called it “unconscionable” for congressional Democrats to call for the federal government to shut down pro-life centers, noting that crisis pregnancy centers provided $266 million worth of free services to almost 2 million clients in 2019. Those services included post-abortive care and recovery counseling, baby clothes, car seats, pregnancy tests, and ultrasounds. 

MRC Free Speech America previously highlighted 67 cases of pro-abortion calls for violence on social media against pro-life clinics and others following the Supreme Court’s overturning of the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling. Social media companies allowed many of the violent posts to remain displayed scot free.

The attorneys general proposed taking action against Google if it continues to acquiesce to leftist demands for pro-abortion censorship. “We wish to make this very clear to Google and the other market participants that it dwarfs: If you fail to resist this [pro-abortion] political pressure, we will act swiftly to protect American consumers from this dangerous axis of corporate and government power.”
