Google backs down on blocking pro-life ads

Briefing. Life ebay and Youtube, Google has to be constantly harried to stop the viscerally intolerant liberalism of its staff effecting its policies. It blocked adverts for pro-life groups linked to the word 'abortion'. Threat of legal action has led to a change of heart.

From CFNews: Colin Hart, Director of the Christian Institute, emails: 'I am delighted to tell you that our legal proceedings against Google for blocking our abortion ad have been settled on amicable terms.

As a result of the court action and other representations made to Google in recent months, Google has reviewed its AdWords policy to enable The Christian Institute and other religious associations to place ads on the subject of abortion in a factual and campaigning way.

The new policy will apply world-wide with immediate effect. This is an important issue of free speech and religious liberty and we are very pleased with Google's constructive response to this matter.

This is yet another success for our Legal Defence Fund. We thank God for this result and we thank you for your prayers and support.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
