The Google Ads policy on abortion will change in early October 2011. The policy is changing so that ads related to abortion and abortion services will be categorized as "Family Safe" in most countries. Furthermore, abortion ads will not serve in three new countries (Austria, Switzerland, and Belgium) in addition to the countries in which it's already prohibited. After the new policy goes into effect, the abortion policy will be updated to reflect this change.
