This article by the Association for Women's Rights in Development (AWID) explores the potential impact of Google Inc.'s recent change in their AdWords
advertising policy on access to critical information on women's
sexual reproductive health. The policy update states that it would no
longer accept ads that promote abortion services in fifteen countries. With the vast reach of Google to users all over the world, how might this impact on women who are seeking information on reliable abortion services through the internet? The article examines the many sides to this issue, from legality, accountability to women's communication rights.
