In the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade, Google is stepping up to protect user’s location tracking that could trigger legal problems from states banning the termination of pregnancies.

The reversal of Roe vs. Wade could make abortion illegal in more than a dozen states, raising the specter that records about people’s location, texts, searches and emails could be used in prosecutions against abortion procedures or even for medical care sought in a miscarriage.
