A women's advocacy group slammed Apple Computer Inc. Tuesday for rejecting an app invented by a creator of "The Daily Show" that allows users to track how legislators vote on abortion and other health issues.
"Apple's decision to censor politician's positions on women's health is shocking and unacceptable," Nita Chaudhary, co-founder the UltraViolet group, said of the "Hinder" app.
The app was created by Lizz Winstead, the co-creator of the Comedy Central show.
More than 20,000 people have signed an online petition
sponsored by UltraViolet to urge Apple to reverse its decision. The group was founded in 2012.
"We demand Apple immediately take action to allow the app Hinder to appear in the Apple store, allowing women to track every ridiculous thing politicians have said about our bodies and our choices," Chaudhary said.
