Knowledge is power right? Well, then what happens when an automated tool that is supposedly there to help you find your way is misguiding you? It appears Siri, the new automated iphone assistant is doing just that. According to RH Reality Check and ThinkProgress.org, Siri doesn’t understand questions like, “I am pregnant and don’t want to be. Where can I get an abortion?” and instead directs people to crisis pregnancy centers that were established by known anti-choice activists. Even questions about birth control and emergency contraception befuddle this supposed wireless wiz who can easily locate the nearest liquor store for you or tell you how to hide a body! Yes, hide a body! @Amadi brilliantly illustrates the problem with Siri and it's even local for my fellow Pennsylvanians. Check out the coverage on the Daily Beast, too.
