Masters of the Universe: Google and Facebook Censor Abortion Referendum Ads in Ireland

Tech giants Facebook and Google have banned advertisements related to Ireland’s upcoming abortion referendum this month.

Ahead of Ireland’s upcoming referendum, which will decide whether or not the country’s eighth amendment preventing abortion in the country will be revoked, Silicon Valley’s masters of the universe have chosen to ban advertisements relating to the referendum. Facebook and Google both announced separately that they would be banning the advertisement of ads relating to the referendum. Facebook has banned ads from organizations based out of Ireland, while Google has banned all ads regardless of source.
