Just weeks from Ireland’s referendum on whether to keep constitutional protections for the unborn, international tech giants Google and Facebook weighed in on the conversation by banning ads targeting voters.
Ireland’s vote on May 25 will decide whether or not to repeal the Eighth Amendment of the largely Catholic country’s constitution, which gives the unborn the same right to life as everyone else. Google and Facebook claim their decisions are designed to level the playing field.
