Google Search and Maps will now clearly label if a healthcare facility provides abortions – TechCrunch

August 26, 2022

Google will start adding clear labels to Search and Map listings for healthcare facilities that provide abortions. The company says the change is rolling out as part of a series of improvements to how Google displays and labels search results for certain places in Search and Maps. A spokesperson for the company told TechCrunch that the improvements will give users additional context about the search results that they’re seeing. A recent report from Bloomberg found that Google regularly misleads people searching for abortion clinics. The company announced this week that it will add a consumer notice to crisis pregnancy centers to differentiate them from abortion clinics.
