Govt funded health database sets “abortion” as Stop Word
Try this- go to POPLine and search on “abortion”.
Can’t do it, can you? Nope!
As a federally funded project, we decided this was best for now.
Talk about a crap line!
When you deny access to information, people won’t STOP looking for the information- they’ll just try to get it any way they can. And that might mean getting it from less-than-credible or complete-bs sources! Then these people are running around the world, misinformed, and getting into even more trouble!
No one would put “cancer” as a stop word, would they? I think not. So why is this any different!? News flash: IT’S NOT!
Just like people thinking giving kids condoms promotes sex, taking away access to information doesn’t make the information need go away- it just makes the information gained less good!
Just like i believe prostitution should be legal (and more easily controlled), and kids should get condoms (safer sex, not more sex… and less pregnant kiddies), NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO LIMIT A HUMAN BEING’S ACCESS TO INFORMATION! ESPECIALLY NOT HEALTH ISSUES!
It’s 2008 people- WAKE UP!
