Washington [US]July 2 (ANI): Search engine Google has decided to delete users’ location history when they visit abortion clinics, domestic violence shelters and other places where privacy is sought.
The special update comes just days after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the 1973 Landmark Row v. Wade ruling, which recognized a woman’s constitutional right to abortion and legalized it nationwide, handing a significant victory to Republicans and religious conservatives who want to limit or ban the process. .
