The Live Action Facebook page has 2.5 million followers. A popular site. And a controversial one, of course, because pro-choicers and liberals don’t like what they say and do. Almost predictably, Facebook has put it under restrictions.
Why? Because two pro-abortion doctors don’t like what the site says.
Facebook notified Live Action founder and president Lila Rose that posts on the page would be subject to “reduced distribution and other restrictions.” Facebook said that an “independent fact-checker” found some of her content to be “false news.”
Facebook marked two videos as false that asserted “abortion is never medically necessary.” Facebook tells users who share the videos that they are false news. In one video, neonatologist Dr. Kendra Kolb explains that while abortion may be considered in some circumstances, it’s not the same thing as being medically necessary.
In the second video, Rose gives a speech on the subject. She says thousands of OB-GYNs and other medical professionals around the world agree with Live Action’s position that “abortion is never medically necessary.” Over a thousand medical professionals signed the Dublin Declaration declaring this.
The Fact-Checkers Are Pro-abortion
The two fact-checkers are both abortion advocates. Dr. Daniel Grossman sits on the board of NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation and has a history of testifying in favor of Planned Parenthood. Dr. Robyn Schickler is a Fellow with the pro-abortion advocacy group Physicians for Reproductive Health.
Health Feedback, part of the International Fact-Checking Network, published the fact check. It partners with Facebook to crack down on misinformation. The fact-checkers wrote, “Certain medical conditions such as placenta previa and HELLP syndrome can make abortion a necessary medical procedure in order to prevent the mother’s death.” Grossman also claimed the videos are false because some preterm babies don’t survive when born that early in order to save the life of the mother.
But Rose says those aren’t abortions, because the baby is not intentionally killed. “If too premature to survive, delivering a child early to save the mother is not an abortion.” She references a Live Action video featuring former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino. In it, he says, “You never need late-term abortion to save a woman’s life. If necessary, you accomplish the delivery. Now, did every one of those children make it because they were preterm? No. But at least they had a chance. And most of them did make it.”
