Facebook says it will ban foreign ads related to Ireland’s referendum on abortion later this month. Google also plans to suspend all advertising in advance of the vote.

Joining The Show to talk about this is John Wonderlich, executive director of the Sunlight Foundation, which works for accountability and transparency in government.
