 Abortion and religion-related content is inappropriate, Google says

Ads for non-religious sites with views on abortion? No problem! Adverts for pornographic sites? Sure! But abortion and religion related content? No way! So Google refused to run a pro-life ad for The Christian Institute's website,, ("UK abortion law - news and views on abortion from the Christian Institute"), because "abortion and religion-related content" is "inappropriate content" according to Google's policy.

Lawyers for the Institute say this is unlawful discrimination under the Equality Act 2006. They demand that Google change its policy or face legal action.
