When The Christian Institute tried to place a pro-life advert about abortion with internet giant Google it was blocked simply because we are a ‘religious’ organisation. This is unlawful under UK law. When Google refused to back down, we issued legal proceedings.
The case was settled before it reached court, with Google agreeing to change its policy worldwide with immediate effect. It means Christian groups across the globe can place factual and campaigning ads on the issue of abortion with Google.
