In the wake of Roe v. Wade being overturned, liberal companies are working in droves to skirt the justice system, all while promoting misinformation and scare tactics. And who is helping lead the way in showing disdain for a decision of our highest court? Our President, as well as today’s Leftist hero: Google.
Google has stated that it will begin automatically deleting location data when users visit abortion clinics and other “highly sensitive” locations.
In a blog post announcing new privacy updates, Google stated: “The reversal of Roe v. Wade could make abortion illegal in more than a dozen states, raising the specter that records about people’s location, texts, searches and emails could be used in prosecutions against abortion procedures...or even for medical care sought in a miscarriage.”
The narrative being pushed by the Left would have the world believe seeking medical attention during a miscarrige could land them in jail. However, that information is false.The Left is counting on the ignorance and blind loyalty of their followers and playing games with the truth, per usual.
The blog post further announced that Google will also be enabling an update for female users of its Fitbit wearable devices who track their periods. While Google is not explicitly referencing the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court, the update would appear directly linked.
And the irony of it? Google’s hypocrisy knows no limits. “Meanwhile, the company relentlessly pushes forward the boundaries of surveillance capitalism, in which the extremely personal user data it sucks up is sold to the highest advertising bidder,” reports Breitbart.
And can we pretend we are surprised by this blatant contempt for the opinions of our highest court? Absolutely not. Especially when our “Commander-in-Chief” is the one encouraging this very type of behavior and disdain.
"The most important thing to be clear about is I believe we have to codify Roe v. Wade in the law," Biden stated. "The way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that, and if the filibuster gets in the way, it's like voting rights – it should be [that] we provide an exception to this … requiring an exception to the filibuster for this action to deal with the Supreme Court decision."
"Today, we're announcing that if our systems identify that someone has visited one of these places, we will delete these entries from Location History soon after they visit. This change will take effect in the coming weeks." -- Google's Senior Vice President of Core Systems and Engagement, Jen Fitzpatrick
