Facebook Hires Abortion Profiteers to Fact Check Anti-Abortion Websites
(Live Action) Abortion is big business for Facebook’s “independent fact checkers” and for the fact checkers’ financial backers — despite claims of impartiality. Last week, Facebook relied on the word of two abortionists to target Live Action and Lila Rose’s pages over the statement “abortion is never medically necessary.” This targeting resulted in penalties to the pages — or as Facebook put it in its limited communication with Live Action, “reduced distribution and other restrictions because of repeated sharing of false news.”
This situation is even more disturbing given the fact that thousands of Board certified OBGYNs agree with Lila Rose and Live Action’s statement. Over 1,000 physicians have signed the Dublin Declaration, declaring in part, “As experienced practitioners and researchers in obstetrics and gynaecology, we affirm that direct abortion – the purposeful destruction of the unborn child – is not medically necessary to save the life of a woman.” According to its website, “the Dublin Declaration on Maternal Health was written and signed by a select panel of the Committee on Excellence in Maternal Healthcare, in September 2012.” In addition, the membership of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists — about 2,500 strong — also holds this position, and has for years.
So, who are these “fact checkers,” exactly, and how are they connected to Big Abortion?
As previously noted by Live Action News, Facebook’s “fact checkers” are two abortionists connected to organizations that are either directly funded by the abortion pill manufacturer, Danco Laboratories, or are funded by Danco investors.
