On Google, 'Abortion' is No. 1 Result for 'Murder' Search

More

Boing Boing's Cory Doctorow reported this morning that "abortion" was the No. 2 result for a Google search on the word "murder," but my own search returned the Wikipedia page for "abortion" as the top result for a Google search on the word. Doctorow says the search results are likely the result of a Googlebomb, a concerted effort by interested parties to link words in search for political or other ends.
