Last week, California research librarian Gloria Won prompted Johns Hopkins officials to change a U.S.-government-funded web site dealing with population issues so that the word "abortion" was restored as search term in the site's search engine. In response to an inquiry from Ms. Won, Debra L. Dickson, an administrator of the POPLINE database, admitted that abortion had recently been made a stop word. "As a federally funded project, we decided this was best for now," said Dickson. Dr. Michael J. Klag, Dean of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Friday (April 4) told POPLINE administrators to restore "abortion" as a search term "immediately."
