The group of 21 Democratic members of Congress sent a letter Friday, June 17, to Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google parent Alphabet Inc.
The lawmakers cited recent data from The Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH), which found one in 10 abortion search results led to anti-abortion clinics, which often bill themselves as "pregnancy resource centers" or "crisis pregnancy centers."The CCDH tested their searches in so-called "trigger law" states.
