FRANKFORT, KY (February 9, 2023) – Attorney General Daniel Cameron today issued a statement on Yelp's response to his letter regarding the company's discrimination against crisis pregnancy centers.
The statement is as follows:
"Two days ago, I led a coalition of 24 attorneys general in sending a letter urging Yelp to stop discriminating against crisis pregnancy centers by placing misleading consumer notices on their profiles but not on Planned Parenthood facility profiles.
The notices informed consumers that crisis pregnancy centers 'typically provide limited medical services and may not have licensed medical professionals onsite.'
Yesterday, Yelp responded to our letter and agreed to remove this misleading statement. The consumer notices on crisis pregnancy profiles now state, 'This is a Crisis Pregnancy Center. Crisis Pregnancy Centers do not offer abortions or referrals to abortion providers.'
This decision moves us one step closer to ensuring women and families have access to accurate information about crisis pregnancy centers and the life-affirming care and support these companies provide. I appreciate Yelp's timely response in addressing our concerns."
