Global Impact of Big Tech Abortion Information Suppression

Mar 11, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

Globally, Big Tech companies and governments are suppressing abortion information and preventing millions of people from accessing healthcare and having complete control over their bodies. With the overturn of Roe v Wade, a surging number of people are searching for abortion-related answers online. When the pro-abortion movement needs tech to step up to ensure our right to accurate healthcare information, the threats of digital suppression and disinformation are increasing. However, the same Big tech policies are often not reinforced and cared for the same in an international context.
