Siri, iPhone's talking digital assistant, appears to be pro life. The blogosphere lit up Wednesday when it was discovered that Siri would not return any results when asked about nearby abortion clinics, even in large metropolitan areas. (See the video below.)

The New York Times reports today that Apple insists this is a programming glitch, and not intentional bias:

“Our customers want to use Siri to find out all types of information, and while it can find a lot, it doesn’t always find what you want,” said Natalie Kerris, a spokeswoman for Apple, in a phone interview late Wednesday. “These are not intentional omissions meant to offend anyone. It simply means that as we bring Siri from beta to a final product, we find places where we can do better, and we will in the coming weeks.”
