• Texas mulls law forcing ISPs to block access to abortion websites

    From Jethro_uk@21:1/5 to All on Sat Mar 4 12:27:55 2023

    A proposed Texas state law would make it a criminal offense for internet service providers (ISPs) to provide access to websites that sell abortion
    pills or provide information about the procedure.

    The bill, introduced by Republican Steve Toth, a member of the state
    House of Representatives, would require ISPs in Texas to "make every
    reasonable and technologically feasible effort to block internet access
    to information or material intended to assist or facilitate efforts to
    obtain an elective abortion or an abortion-inducing drug."


    I wonder how this might be related to the UKs "legal but harmful"
    proposed censorship ?
