Subcategory of "Organizations" is designated for institutional entities. Subcategory of "Products and Services" is designated for sites primarily offering pro-choice merchandise and information services (does not include abortion services). ODP may not discriminate based on a site's creed. However, sites directly advocating violence lose their First Amendment protections and should not be listed.
