Philosophy Wire: Siri, a pro-life technology? Yikes!

_57063640_siri4Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2011-12-03]: Apple has denied claims that its smartphone voice-activated assistant Siri is anti-abortion. It follows reports that Siri failed to locate nearby abortion clinics. In some cases it suggested pregnancy advice centres as an alternative. Bloggers and rights groups had voiced their concern over the omission [source: BBC News] (!!!) Well, this is indeed a “serious” problem with the software. A software that does not help you kill babies? A software which advises you in favor of life? Who the hell needs that? Helloooo!!! It seems that humans have not only lost their free will (a computer must tell them where to go), but they also consider that their “right” !!!
