In response to Democratic politicians recently asking Google to limit the appearance of pro-life clinics in Google search results, a Virginia-led multistate letter was sent to the CEO of Alphabet Inc.—the multinational Big Tech conglomerate of which Google is a part.
Attorneys General are urging the company not to discriminate against crisis pregnancy centers in search results and online advertising.
Google has been caving in to the far left progressive Democrats by taking away such pregnancy centers from their advertisements and Google Maps entries on their search site.
The letter asks Google to advise the 17 co-signing Attorneys General whether it has adjusted its search results and advertisements to discriminate against crisis pregnancy centers, and if so, how.
“Unfortunately, several national politicians now seek to wield Google’s immense market power by pressuring the company to discriminate against pro-life crisis pregnancy centers,” the letter says.
ASSAULT ON FREE SPEECH
“Complying with these demands would constitute a grave assault on the principle of free speech,” the attorneys general wrote. “‘Unbiased access to information,’ while no longer a component of Google’s corporate creed, is still what Americans expect from your company. ‘[S]tudies have found web users are more likely to find and trust news through search than social media sites.'”
They further explained the actions that would be taken against Google if it adheres to the Democrats’ “inappropriate demand.”
“Our offices will (1) conduct thorough investigations to determine whether this suppression violates the antitrust laws of the United States and our States; (2) investigate whether Google’s conduct amounts to an unlawful act of religious discrimination under state law; and (3) consider whether additional legislation—such as nondiscrimination rules under common carriage statutes—is necessary to protect consumers and markets,” the attorneys general noted.
“We trust that you will treat this letter with the seriousness these issues require, and hope you will decide that Google’s search results must not be subject to left-wing political pressure, which would actively harm women seeking essential assistance,” the letter reads. “If you do not, we must avail ourselves of all lawful and appropriate means of protecting the rights of our constituents, of upholding viewpoint diversity, free expression, and the freedom of religion for all Americans, and of making sure that our markets are free in fact, not merely in theory.”
