WTF! iPhone 4s Assistant Siri Is Against Abortion

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooTacky & TrueTech Talk

siri is anti abortion

Not. Cool.

According to a new report, iPhone 4s electronic personal assistant Siri refuses to locate anti-abortion clinics.

In one particular example, a woman in Washington, D.C. asked Siri to locate such a facility, but instead of directing her to the Planned Parenthood on 16th St, NW, Siri told the woman to visit the 1st Choice Women's Health Center, which is an anti-abortion Crisis Pregnancy Center in Landsdowne, Virginia.

Apparently, if you ask Siri to locate abortion clinics in New York City, she'll say she didn't find any at all.

Oh, and we're hearing that another woman asked Siri "Why are you anti-abortion," to which the iphone assistant responded "I just am…"

We find it SERIOUSLY troubling that Siri will help locate nearby strip clubs, but she won't allow users to visit abortion clinics.

Might want to hire different programmers for version 2.0, Apple. Think about it.

    How fucking lame are you that you had to steal this exact report fro the Colbert Report? This site is getting old and lame. You used to be right on top of things, now all you do i plagiarize.



  2. 2

    Ugh, you're making it really hard for me to defend "you" and your site with posts like this

    … and even still. Siri can't have an opinion?? What if she were FOR abortion? Then, someone else would just be complaining bc she was for it. If she had to choose a side, at least she chose one that doesn't kill anyone…



  3. 3

    Do your own research before you post shit like this. I have an iPhone 4S and I just did a simple test. I asked Siri "Are you anti-abortion?" to which she replied, "I can't answer that". I also asked "What do you think of abortion?" and Siri said "It doesn't really matter what I think".

    Clearly these reports are bullshit and it takes all of 30 seconds to verify that.

    That's fucking awesome. Now get some of your own original stories, lame-o.

    Apple products suck! And krystleboga shut the fuck up you backwards ass, fetuses aren't people!



  6. 6

    Refuses to locate anti-abortion clinics or abortion clinics?



  7. 7

    I sense you have a strong opinion on the topic of abortion. Obviously, you're prochoice. Could this have something to do with that fact you have animosity against your mother for not aborting you? You are a fucking moron perez. Report actual news worthy topics instead of this bullshit.



  8. 8

    Make your mind up, first you say it refuses to find anti-abortion clinics then you say it directs people to anti-abortion clinics.

    It takes less than a minute to do this for yourself, I asked mine for an abortion clinic and it came up my four nearest ones, I then asked the second question of why are you anti-abortion and it said "I can't answer that". I'm in the UK but if I use mine and ask for abortion clinics in NY it comes up with quite a few.

    Also Perez, you don't visit a strip club to kill your child!



  9. 9

    You are such a Lib.

    So if she is "anti-abortion" why are you saying she refused to find "anti-abortion" clinics? That makes no sense. You mean she refused to located abortion clinics, stupid.

    And in other news SIri wouldn't answer when asked the best way to kill little babies.

    Hilton, you really can't be that much of an idiot can you. Do you also find it SERIOUSLY troubling that Siri will help you locate a restaurant, gas station, a theatre but she won't allow users to kill their own babies. I think the decision to abort a baby is a little bigger and the user shouldn't seek advice from a computerized phone.

    Re: plumcocco – Are you fking kidding me? A fetus is not human?? You are twisted and I'm scared for you!



  14. 14

    I am pro-choice, in fact I have observed abortions taking place as part of my training. I do not expect everyone else to feel obliged to partake in abortion practices and that goes for the creators of i-phone 4. The purpose of choice is about respecting a womans right to choose to end her pregnancy as opposed to helping her to end her pregnancy. I do not want to live in a world where we do not respect one anothers views. I respect all views as long as they don't involve violence or pain. Honestly perez, don't you think it's a bit fucking crass to ask an i-phone where to get an abortion anyway.. it's almost as though life is as irrelevant as ordering a pizza! If you want an abortion that badly then you'll find your way there!

    Who the hell casually asks their iPhone to find them an abortion clinic? It's not exactly like asking it to find an Olive Garden. Do some actual research and stop being fucking flippant and lazy about a life altering decision.



  16. 16

    I'm not in the market for it, but I tested it on my own 4s, and it found two clinics.
    Do some research please.



  17. 17

    How do you compare locating a Strip Club to locating an Abortion Clinic????



  18. 18

    Apple will never ENDORSE abortion, how stupid is that? Im sure there are other ways to find an abortion clinic besides Siri. Geez get over yourself Mario, choosing life isn't a bad thing.

    Re: plumcocco – you sound like a complete idiot.."fetus aren't people" …. you should put that on a bumper sticker so everyone knows what a psychopath you are.



  20. 20

    I just did a test on my Iphone 4s, and Siri found me an abortion clinic only 22 minutes away. Sound like if the person asked for an ANTI-abortion clinic (which you indicated) then Siri was doing her job correctly, giving an anti-abortion clinic as a result. Your "article" makes no sense.



  21. 21

    It's a woman's choice.



  22. 22

    Siri searches titles of places, no clinic has a title that says "Abortion Clinic" if you ask Siri to locate a planned parenthood it will do it for you. I did ask it why it was anti abortion and it said I am what I am. It's mildly entertaining but to say it has an opinion about it is ridiculous.

    Re: babiipiinko6x – Hilton thinks its the IPhone's choice



  24. 24

    Editing fail.

    However, I am inclined to mention that most anti-abortion clinics do tend to present themselves in a manner which means it can be difficult for a person, let alone a piece of software to identify if it is an anti-choice location or not.



  25. 25

    Re: Mrs_Bathscum – "I respect all views as long as they don't involve violence or pain." Excuse me???? Does not aborting cause both???? What world are we living in??



  26. 26

    There is nothing wrong with being pro-life. And btw not all gays are pro-choice Perez.



  27. 27

    Re: Time Wasting – Yeah I felt I worded that wrong! I mean violence or pain to other people. Yes, abortion is one of the most destructive things on the planet, I for one would never have one, I only speak from observing medical abortions that they are only painful for the woman. The foetus dies in the exact same way as a miscarriage, through the failure of maternal hormones.. the only difference is that the hormones in abortion fail by choice. I would never tell a woman who was going through a miscarriage (and I have looked after these women also) that their baby suffered as it's life ended. Surgical abortion, I can't judge it because i have not been involved but I don't think I would want to be either.



  28. 28

    While I don't agree with it, it's easy to understand WHY… Steve Jobs was adopted so I imagine he held a strong belief that adoption was a better option than abortion.



  29. 29

    Also, a surgical abortion can only take place before nine weeks in my country, I assure you at this stage it has no bone structure, the fetuses you see on anti abortion sites are much more developed, at nine weeks (which is the maximum point you can have a surgical termination) I cannot imagine how it could feel pain, as it has a primitive nervous system, nowhere near to the point that it would have developed nociceptors (the receptor cells to detect pain) the brain is also too immature that it could interpret such messages.



  30. 30

    That's odd. I asked Siri to direct me to a Planned Parenthood. It popped up the three closest and gave me directions. Then I asked for abortion clinics in my area, and it did a web search and showed me the nearby ones.



  31. 31

    Anyone who thinks the dark days of the world war II holocaust are over and we learned our lessons from the smoke pouring from the chimneys of Auschwitz crematoriums should take a look at the smoke pouring from the abortion clinics all over the planet. The death toll from innocents babies murdered as they grow, far exceeds that of any Nazi dictatorship or war.



  32. 32

    Isn't that shit found in a phonebook? Or the internet? Oh no, the apple iphone won't do what I want, we should all just never buy one again because if we want to have an abortion, we won't be able to find a place.

    Maybe those skanks should shut their legs instead of bitching about their iphones? And yes, I am generalizing, people who get abortions are usually the skankiest dirt of them all…



  33. 33

    This is a lie. I just asked Siri to find abortion clinics and she came up with two. DO SOME RESEARCH BEFORE YOU POST A STORY PEREZ.



  34. 34

    Love it - wish more people thought like Suri. Abortion is MURDER!



  35. 35

    The article doesn't lie. I asked Siri to fond an abortion clinic, and it said, "Sorry, I cannot find any abortion clinics." I asked it to fiond an abortion clinic in LosAngeles, then in New York. It couldn't find any. When I asked for a family planning clinic, it anwerd that it "couldn't find any abortion clinics." When I asked "Siri, why are you against abortion," it replied, "I am what I am." The second time I asked it, it said, "I just am."



  36. 36

    JUST SAYING…. i just told my siri that i needed to have an abortion and she gave me the location of a nearby abortion clinic.. so this is wrong



  37. 37

    If this happened, I'm sure it has to do with the fact that places are not actually called ABORTION CLINICS. Furthermore, I just asked for an abortion clinic and it gave me places that actually performed abortions. Like others, I asked why she was against abortion and she said "I am what I am", I asked again and got "I just am". Thinking that it was a programmed response to something she does not have the answer for, I asked "Why are you against puppies?" and she also responded with "I am what I am". I asked it again and got "I just am". I'm assuming that's the response you will get if you ask her why she is against or for anything. People are making too much out of this. I kind of doubt it even happened.



  38. 38

    geez perez, these people are really excitable, arent they? first, to the post itself, all companies that provide services or products are subject to their investors. If a major investor or member of the board is pro- something, the product will reflect that to some degree. The product/service can't be unbiased because people arent, and where there is money that bias can be bought and sold like a commodity. It's no surprise that people are having issues with abortion clinics, and if you conducted a study of other controversial searches, i'm sure more issues would turn up. NOW, to the commentators, i will apologize for perez myself for him not reporting 100% never before heard stories 100% of the time…… because every news website should only tell news that nobody has ever heard before they report it. (that's sarcasm for those of you yet to fully comprehend humor.) and seeing as this is HIS website, and not a major news network, he is entitled to his opinions and beliefs. oh and by the way, not to be cliche, but if you don't like what you are reading, you are absolutely free to go elsewhere and read something more to your liking. although, haters make us stronger. and perez is ferocious. keep it coming mr.hilton. you are fabulous.



  39. 39

    Here's a novel solution - try searching for a clinic manually. This is such a non-article.



  40. 40

    LOL! Siri's a Republican. No wonder why she sounds so lifeless.



  41. 41

    Perez you are so smug…and from what I can tell, you always look like an idiot because of it. If you could just write these reports like a normal person, maybe people wouldn't despise you.



  42. 42

    Perez, you are killing me! Refuses to locate "anti-abortion clinics"?? Most of your posts these days have a variation of inconsistencies and misspellings. It's driving me crazy!



  43. 43

    so you think it's ok to kill babies, but you can't get over the slaughtering of horses!

  44. Bates says – reply to this


    44

    Wow, this stinks. But apperently Siri swings the other way. I have the iPhone 4s but never use Siri. Not good Apple! BTW, I think you ment to say "refuses to locate abortion clinics", not "anti-abortion clinics."



  45. 45

    This article proves how lame Perez Hilton is getting and how ill informed he is. I'm sure someone had a iPhone 4s they could have tested it on but they didn't. Anyways, I tested it on mine and it worked. But what really got me upset about this article was when he said ""we find this SERIOUSLY troubling that Siri will help locate nearby strip clubs, but she won't allow users to visit abortion clinics." WTF? I think that having a surgery done is A LOT worse than going to a stripper. Even if Siri was "against abortion" what is the big deal? I don't think anyone should rely on a phone assistant for a surgery. Would you go ask if you wanted plasic surgery or gastric bypass surgery or any other surgery? No, because the RIGHT thing to do is do research and make sure the place you are getting the operation is safe, effective and trustworthy. I am officially done with Perez.

    Re: yeez – What's wrong with asking for medical help?

    47

    I think some people are too harsh with Perez. He is just passing on important information to more people. And that is an asset to the community.



  48. 48

    That is crazy, there is a post on the blog www.theiphoneaddict.com that suggests Siri is a left wing conservative. Steve Jobs was an undercover republican.



  49. 49

    Perez, not really liking your site lately. Why does it matter if Siri doesn't do that? You really can't depend on technology for every little thing especially to locate an abortion clinic. I found this post to be laughable.



  50. 50

    i love abortion….population control people…..



  51. 51

    Siri no Sick!



  52. 52

    Just for everyone's info - Siri is not anti-abortion. Abortion clinics do not list their addresses publicly, and clinics are usually unmarked on buildings in order to avoid unwanted attention from anit-abortionist groups, as well as protecting the privacy of the women who go to them. You contact them through a phone number at which point you are referred to an address. SO Siri isn't able to locate them on a map because she has no access to addresses. I would think if you asked Siri for an abortion clinic phone number she may be able to help.



  53. 53

    Re: plumcocco – lmao. me being against abortion has nothing to do with my point that this is a ridiculous post… but that's okay. I'd be an angry dick/bitch if I was you too. :] Luckily, I'm me. ;)



  54. 54

    I live in Austin, TX, and just asked Siri to find me an abortion clinic and she did without any trouble. It was 55 miles away, but if you think about it, most Planned Parenthoods and other doctors who perform abortions don't list themselves as "abortion clinics." Siri can't find you an ingrown toenail doctor either… ask her for an OBGYN and i'm sure she can find you plenty.
