Govt. Funded Health Search Engine Blocks “Abortion”

Now this seems to be a story that would get attention if it weren’t for the fact President Bush is a lame duck and soon out of office. The government funded health search engine Popline run by John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health was not returning results when searching for the term abortion Thursday, Wired reported.

Interestingly, I was getting results in Amsterdam that listed the reports mentioned by Wired. So they either changed back to avoid controversy or they are using geoIP recognition and just blocking US traffic.

Either way… bad move George W. and shame on you John Hopkins…. did you sell out to the Republicans when Bloomberg got on board?
