The statement, “Abortion is Never Medically Necessary” caused a pro-life group to be sanctioned by Facebook.

Facebook has been caught once again using its ministry of truth – a collection of capriciously selected “fact checkers” hand-picked to control freedom of information – to suppress and punish conservative voices.
This time, the victims are pro-life activists who are being punished for circulating the claim that abortions are never medically necessary. LiveAction received a demerit that has caused their page to be censored by the Big Tech monopoly platform.
“Your page has reduced distribution and other restrictions because of repeated sharing of false news. People will also be able to see if a Page has history of sharing false news,” Facebook told LiveAction in a violation notice.
This violation was levied despite the fact that LiveAction conducted factually accurate reporting about the Dublin Declaration, a document signed by over 1,000 OB-GYNs, doctors and other healthcare experts proclaiming that abortion is never a medically necessary procedure.
“As experienced practitioners and researchers in obstetrics and gynecology, we affirm that direct abortion – the purposeful destruction of the unborn child — is not medically necessary to save the life of a woman,” the declaration states.
“We uphold that there is a fundamental difference between abortion, and necessary medical treatments that are carried out to save the life of the mother, even if such treatment results in the loss of life of her unborn child. We confirm that the prohibition of abortion does not affect, in any way, the availability of optimal care to pregnant women,” it continues.
LiveAction is speaking out against a social media monolith that they feel is deliberately bigoted against Christians, and promotes a leftist worldview by its very existence. Lila Rose, the founder and president of Live Action, is speaking out against this systemic bias.
“With thousands of OB-GYN’s and medical professionals on the record agreeing with us that the direct killing of a child is never medically necessary, it is telling that Facebook decided to fact-check our information, which we have posted about for over three years, using two abortionists for their sourcing,” Rose said.
“Not only did they fail to get disinterested perspectives, they appear to have gone out of their way to find pro-abortion activists whose public opposition to our views is indisputable. This is clear evidence of bias and discrimination against our over three million strong Facebook community members and an outrageous act of censorship on the part of Facebook,” she added.
The Facebook fact checker that flagged LiveAction, Health Feedback, is one employed by Facebook’s ministry of truth to suppress wrongthink. Big League Politics was recently flagged by this same system of thought control that is being used as a last ditch effort to preserve control of the narrative for the political establishment against rising independent competition.
Rose is concerned about the affect LiveAction censorship will have on Christian speech as well as the 1st Amendment in a broader sense. Facebook and other tech giants are on the precipice of realizing the Orwellian nightmare.
“Continued efforts to censor Live Action will have tremendous implications, not only for the pro-life movement, but for free speech in America,” Rose said.
Unless President Donald Trump takes immediate executive action to stop Facebook and other tech giants from engaging in these abusive practices, nothing may stand in the way of Big Brother.
