Apple has put itself in hot water in a situation where one side or the other was bound to get angry to some extent. The issue is one of abortion. Apparently, some have found that Siri doesn’t have listings for women’s health clinics or abortion clinics. The issue came to a head when the ACLU found that Siri didn’t return clinic locations when they were nearby.
Apple has issued a statement via a spokesperson and claims that the lack of clinic listings was an omission not something done purposefully. The spokesperson also hinted that things like this are why Siri is a beta product.
Seemingly that would mean Apple would add in listings for abortion clinics and women’s health clinics to Siri listings. Apple didn’t come out and specifically state that intention though. The inclusion of those clinics will likely anger the pro-life supporters so Apple has very little room to maneuver here.
