Congressman Aderholt Joins Letter Demanding Yelp End Its Unfair Attack on Pregnancy Resource Centers

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Robert Aderholt joined Republican colleagues in sending a letter to Yelp demanding answers regarding their unfair treatment of pregnancy resource centers.

On August 23, 2022, to appease calls from the left, Yelp announced that they would place “consumer notices” on every Pregnancy Resource Center’s (PRC’s) page stating that they didn’t have medical personnel onsite. Even in cases where the PRC has produced medical licensing information, Yelp has refused to remove the notice. In addition, Pregnancy Resources Centers wishing to update their services to reflect accurate information have been locked out of that aspect of their account. 

“Pregnancy Resource Centers provide a vital resource to women who find themselves in unplanned pregnancies,” said Congressman Aderholt.  “There are numerous Pregnancy Resource Centers across the 4th District who provide care for women and their unborn children without pressuring them to seek an abortion.  Yelp has given into the woke left and joined their mission to slander these critical centers.  It needs to stop.”

This letter was led by Representatives John Carter (R-TX) and Jim Banks (R-IN).  Congressman Aderholt was joined in signing the letter with Representatives Vicky Hartzler (R-MO), Christopher H. Smith (R-NJ), Randy Weber (R-TX), Glenn Grothman (R-WI), Pat Fallon (R-TX), Andy Harris, M.D. (R-MD), Doug Lamborn (R-CO), Andrew Clyde (R-GA), Bob Good (R-VA), Alex Mooney (R-WV), Michael Cloud (R-TX), Brian Babin (R-TX), Virginia Foxx (R-NC), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Jeff Duncan (R-SC) Mary E. Miller (R-IL), Debbie Lesko (R-AZ), Ronny Jackson (R-TX), Troy Nehls (R-TX), and Van Taylor (R-TX).
