The Apple iPhone\u2019s voice-enabled artificial intelligence engine, Siri, will give you the low-down on hot spots in the red light district of a city, but when it comes to finding an abortion clinic Siri draws a blank, according to recent reports.\n\tBy now, we\u2019re all wondering: Is Apple pushing its social values on us through its technology again?\n\tI say again, of course, because Apple vets its App Store with the same kind of social police tactics akin to those in George Orwell\u2019s famously dark novel 1984.\n\tWho can forget Apple\u2019s bikini ban of 2010, which, without warning, kicked out previously authorized apps from the App Store for showing too much skin? (Oddly, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit calendar app didn\u2019t get caught up in the sweep.)\n\tIf you ask Siri to find a local abortion clinic in Manhattan, Siri\u2019s response is: \u201cSorry, I couldn\u2019t find any abortion clinics\u201d even though there are a lot of them, according to The New York Times. I tested Siri this morning in a suburb 30 miles east of San Francisco and received a similar response, despite the fact that a Google search turned up two nearby locations.\n\tAsk Siri the same question in Washington D.C., and it gets worse. Not only will Siri not direct you to the nearby Planned Parenthood, but it outrageously suggests you go to 1st Choice Women\u2019s Health Center in Virginia or Human Life Services in Pennsylvania, both anti-abortion centers, reports The Raw Story.\n\tSo what\u2019s going on? The New York Times asked Norman Winarsky, one of the founders of Siri before it was acquired by Apple last year. He didn\u2019t exactly put the blame on Apple for modifying Siri, rather the third-party Web services that Siri taps to get answers about local businesses.\n\t\u201cMy guess at what\u2019s happening here is that Apple has made deals with Web services that provide local business information, and Apple probably hasn\u2019t paid much attention to all the results that come up,\u201d Winarsky said.\n\tTech analyst Rob Enderle doesn\u2019t let Apple off the hook so easily. Apple, he says, has avoided sensitive issues in the past and may have thought it best not to provide an answer to such a controversial topic as abortion.\n\tNevertheless, it\u2019s unlikely that Apple purposely took a pro-life stance, given that Steve Jobs was considered a liberal in this regard. Perhaps an employee slipped personal views past Siri testers.\n\t\u201cI think it more likely this was the act of an employee who was not authorized, or an issue with one of the back-end services, as this would be a somewhat unusual search request and might not have come up in testing,\u201d Enderle says.\n\tRogue behavior probably explains it best.
