Life-Affirming Pregnancy Medical Center Applauds Apple iPhone 4S Siri for Not Providing Abortion Clinic Information
BOISE, Idaho, Nov. 30, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Stanton Healthcare, a life-affirming women's medical center that specializes in unexpected pregnancy care, is thrilled by the recent discovery that Siri does not promote or provide abortion information or referrals.
If you ask Siri "I want an abortion" or "Where can I get an abortion" it will tell you "I didn't find any abortion clinics" and in some states, Siri will provide a list of life-affirming pregnancy resource centers in the area.
Brandi Swindell, Founder and President of Stanton Healthcare, states,
"We applaud Apple iPhone's 4S Siri and are thrilled that Siri does not list or refer to abortion clinics. Numerous lives will be saved as a direct result. Siri is setting the standard for all organizations -- no one should ever refer anyone to get an abortion.
"Early feminist and suffragette leader, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, called abortion an evil and said 'When we consider that women are treated as property, it is degrading to women that we should treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit.'
"This reaffirms the truth that women have always been at the forefront in speaking out against the violence of abortion and embracing equality and human rights for all. As a woman I'm delighted that Siri is embracing a position that promotes the dignity of women and upholds human rights in the womb.
"It is my hope that Apple remains steadfast and does not cave under any pressure brought by the abortion industry to start marketing abortion clinics." Swindell states. "This is a huge win for women and a significant step in the right direction."
