DOJ Charges 2 over Planned Parenthood Firebombing; Google Made $10M from Anti-Abortion Ads

HeadlineJun 15, 2023

Here in the United States, the Justice Department has charged an active-duty marine and one other person for firebombing a Planned Parenthood clinic in Costa Mesa, California, with a Molotov cocktail in March of last year. The two arrested men, Chance Brannon and Tibet Ergul, could face up to 20 years in federal prison.

In related news, a new report from the Center for Countering Digital Hate finds that Google made over $10 million from ads by anti-abortion groups over the past 2 years. The Google ads were for so-called crisis pregnancy centers, which aim to steer people away from having abortions while posing as reproductive healthcare clinics.
