A pro-life group, Operation Rescue, claims Google is removing its site from Google searches.
The Blaze reports:
Google has an abundance of control over what consumers see, and one leading pro-life organization believes the search engine is drastically reducing the group’s exposure when people search for information about abortion.
Operation Rescue keeps up-to-date statistics about abortion providers and abortionists in the U.S., and the group says that, since May, it’s seen a massive decrease in the number of people visiting its Abortion in America page, which had in the past been the most trafficked page on the website.
In a news release last week, Operation Rescue said it had “previously appeared on Google in top five hits on the search ‘Abortions in US,’ and was a top referrer to OperationRescue.org.”
“It has since been buried off the first results page and well down the list,” Cheryl Sullenger, senior vice president of Operation Rescue, said. “The page was also dropped off the first page of results for the search ‘Abortion Statistics,’ which had been one of Operation Rescue.org’s top search referrals.”
Sullenger said the page had been receiving an average of 16,000 views per month “with virtually no promotion” and was on the path to “a record-breaking year” in January with 37,111 views. But then traffic suddenly plummeted.
“Within the month of May, views mysteriously decreased by more than half over the previous month,” she said. “In June, it received only 1,512 views. During the last seven days of June, it only received 307 views.”
