EDMONTON—Pro-choice groups are calling on a government-run website to stop referring Albertans with reproductive health questions to agencies they deem anti-choice, transphobic and homophobic.
InformAlberta, an online directory of publicly funded or non-profit health, community and government organizations and services, links to anti-abortion groups and faith-based crisis pregnancy care centres — alongside legitimate medical resources — when users search terms such as abortion, sexual health education, teen pregnancy, and pregnancy test.
