Siri, why won't you help me find family planning services?

    1. Petition by

      The Abortioneers

If Siri is providing information for users who require medical attention-like an erection lasting more than 4 hours, chest pain, or active labor, then she should provide accurate information about family planning services including contraception and abortion care.

Additionally, she should point users to the right place when they report they have been sexually assaulted. If Siri can provide information about how to dispose of a dead body, where to purchase illegal drugs, or where to get an escort, she should certainly provide accurate family planning location information to her users.

Over 6 million people use iPhones in the US.  

38 million women in their reproductive years are using contraception.  1.2 million women will have an abortion every year, and 1 in 3 women will have an abortion in her lifetime.  

Meanwhile, there is estimated 2200 episodes of an erection lasting more than 4 hours per year.  

And yet, Siri can answer your erection question but not your family planning inquiry.

Apple needs to update Siri's capabilities and provide accurate resources for family planning services. Please help us petition Apple inc and spread the word!
