In the wake of the uproar that followed Raw Story’s reporting that iPhone’s Siri not only cannot help users figure out where to get an abortion but, in some cases, sends them to anti-abortion Crisis Pregnancy Centers, Apple finally responded that the errors aren’t ‘intentional.’
Apple spokesperson Natalie Kerris told the New York Times‘ Jenna Wortham, “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.”
