Wisconsin Rep. Fitzgerald Signs on to Letter Opposing Google Ban of Live Action Abortion Pill Reversal Ads

Congressman Scott Fitzgerald


Wisconsin Representative Scott Fitzgerald (R-WI-05) signed onto a letter opposing Google’s ban of abortion reversal pills from the pro-life organization Live Action. Fitzgerald tweeted out saying he had joined Representative Jim Banks (R-IN-03) “in demanding answers from Google for their indefensible decision to bow to pressure from the left.”

The ads that Google declined to run were from the pro-life organization Live Action, a group that focuses on saving the lives of unborn babies. The advertisements themselves were for abortion reversal pills.

According to the Charlotte Lozier Institute, the abortion reversal pills have around a 68% success rate. Abortion reversal pills are taken after the first dose of a chemical abortion, but before the second dose. The Charlotte Lozier Institute says that the pills need to be taken within 72 hours of the first dose of the chemical abortion drug in order to be effective.

The letter, supported by over 40 Republicans, said, “The practical consequence of Google’s abortion distortion is that pregnant mothers in crisis will only have the option to be marketed abortion drugs through Google’s ad platforms, while life-affirming alternatives are suppressed.”

The Washington Examiner reported, Banks said, “It is disturbing, but not surprising, that the Big Tech regime would attack those advocating for the least powerful among us.”

Banks said the decision will “cost unborn lives.

“Google’s sudden and arbitrary censorship of Live Action’s abortion pill reversal hotline will cost unborn lives. The decision is neither morally nor scientifically defensible and proves that Google is way out of touch with ordinary Americans,” Banks told The Washington Examiner.

A spokesperson for Google responded to the outrage saying that Google does “not permit ads with unproven medical claims.”

The spokesperson told The Washington Examiner, “We do not permit ads with unproven medical claims. Medical experts have raised serious concerns about abortion reversal pills. Beyond protecting users from medical harm, our policies do not distinguish between promoting pro-choice and pro-life messages.”

The representatives said, “Advertisers are allowed to offer either abortion or abortion-alternative services. When doing so, both must prominently disclose which type of service they offer so that users have full transparency and can make their own decisions.”

Fitzgerald blasted Google for stopping the promotion of what he said he believes to be “FDA-approved, pro-life life-saving treatment for pregnant mothers.”
