When you search for “abortion clinics” on Yahoo, the majority of ads that show up are funded by anti-choice groups!

We just celebrated a major victory when Google took down a slew of deceptive anti-choice ads, sparing women from being tricked and lied to. But we can't stop now.

Yahoo must have seen the news about Google’s action. It should already be digging to find out if anti-choice groups are also manipulating their ads. The problem is that these anti-choice ads look harmless. We’ve sent our research to Yahoo today to help them understand how widespread the problem really is, and want to follow it up with a petition signed by 50,000 people this week to show that we have no tolerance for ads that deceive women.
You’ve seen the photos of anti-choice protesters who harass women outside abortion clinics. They’ve used this tactic for years. But the anti-choice movement’s Internet strategy targets women before they even leave their homes.
These ads use vague language that masks their true motives. If you click through, you’ll get connected to a crisis pregnancy center (CPC). CPCs are anti-choice fake clinics don’t provide or refer for abortion care. The trouble is, a woman might think she’s made an appointment with a real medical provider, and she won’t know what she’s gotten into until she gets to a CPC in person, where she’ll likely face manipulation, misinformation, and even shame to stop her from considering abortion - and even birth control - as an option.
Billions of people use Yahoo every month, and it’s a target of anti-choice groups. If we can get Yahoo to drop deceptive anti-choice ads, we’ll spare countless women from being tricked and lied to.

Thanks for all you do to make choice real for all women.
