FREE SPEECH AT GOOGLE: "After a lawsuit from a Christian anti-abortion group, Google is allowing religious organizations to take out ads using the keyword 'abortion,' a rare case of the search giant admitting it was wrong. . . . Google has limits on what can and cannot be advertised; it will not allow ads for products derived from endangered species, for example, nor will it allow ads promoting violence. In the past, Google would not sell the 'abortion' keyword to religious groups, but did sell it to other groups, including secular groups, doctors offering abortions and resource sites like Our Bodies, Ourselves."
