Is Siri Pro Life? Apparently Yes (Updated)

I wonder how soon this will be “fixed”:
From Gizmodo:

The evidence seems pretty damning.

• If you ask Siri for an abortion clinic in New York City, it will tell you “Sorry, I couldn’t find any abortion clinics.” A simple Google web search—which Siri itself uses to find results—gives you seven to start with, some within walking distance of where I’m located.

• If you ask the same question in the city of Washington DC, Siri won’t direct you to a nearby clinic, but to one 26 miles away.

• A reader reported that when he asked “find a pregnancy termination clinic” Siri responded: “I found a number of medical centers fairly close to you.” Then “it showed me seven results and four of them were chiropractors, two were acupuncture specialists, and one was an emergency room.” Update: Indeed, after we tested this, it’s true.

I would assume this is because most abortion providers call themselves “Comprehensive Women’s Health Services” or something along those lines.

Comments

  1. This is a valid topic for discussion, but I think that there are better ways to do it.

  2. My sense of outrage is only outstripped by my righteous indignation.

    If nothing else, Siri ought to be thinking about the children. All those pregnant children out there and nowhere to go to take care of their children.

    A firm rule must be imposed upon this technology before it destroys itself. Siri needs some theology and geometry, some taste and decency. I suspect that we are teetering on the edge of the abyss.

    And, of course, I must stay to watch the decadence…

      Hi JOB

      You said,
      “I suspect that we are teetering on the edge of the abyss”

      These kind of apocalyptic statements are the sole domain of me. If anyone is going to make a call, it is my responsibility to make that call. We may actually be in the abyss. I am trying to confirm it right now.

      In the meantime, I found this article on the sidebar of Gizmodo. It was pretty good and I thought your readers may enjoy.

    Easy for you to say from your Wisconsin compound with your guns and ammunition and grain silos.

    Enjoy the show.

  4. Wise as serpents, people.

  5. Jonathan Potter says:

    Google+ has dispatched a team of pro-abort hackers to address the issue.

  6. My husband’s employer just sent out new Iphones to all their engineers–and his arrived in the mail yesterday. Spent the evening last night asking Siri questions–though I didn’t ask where to get an abortion.

    Siri did not know who the president of the United States was. She did know the square root of 64. When asked what her name was, she said, “I’m flattered by your interest–Is there something I can help you find?” When asked why she was such a smart-ass, she said, “I am what I am.”

    I’m telling you–I’m a little jealous that my husband is going to be spending his days with this Siri floozy.

  7. Deux ex machina?
