Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg admits there ‘clearly was bias’ against Live Action fact checking

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg told U.S. Senator Josh Hawley that Facebook was wrong to censor pro-life group Live Action, and that there was “clearly bias” in the social media giant’s “fact check.”

Hawley tweeted: “Just finished meeting w CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Had a frank conversation. Challenged him to do two things to show FB is serious about bias, privacy & competition. 1) Sell WhatsApp & Instagram 2) Submit to independent, third-party audit on censorship. He said no to both”

Second tweet: “Zuckerberg admitted there “clearly was bias” in the censorship. Said bias is “an issue we’ve struggled with for a long time.”

During August, Facebook fact checker Health Feedback sought out two abortionists to “fact check” Live Action’s claim that abortion is never medically necessary.

Live Action founder and president Lila Rose and Live Action followers were given notifications from Facebook that these claims were false according to an “independent fact checker,” not alerting these followers that the fact checkers were actually abortionists, and therefore biased.

The pro-life site detailed that situation:

The fact check claims, “[The video] does not mention that this (preterm separation) is only applicable when a fetus’ gestational age is advanced enough that its survival outside the womb is possible (generally >24 weeks old). In situations where a fetus has not developed sufficiently.”

However, neither Rose nor Live Action has ever said that a preborn child would always survive a preterm delivery. As board certified neonatologist Dr. Kendra Kolb explained in the Pro-Life Replies video on this very issue (one of the videos that the abortionists labeled as “false news”):

In situations where the mother’s life is truly in jeopardy, her pregnancy must end, and the baby must be delivered.These situations occur in cases of mothers who develop dangerously high blood pressure, have decompensating heart disease, life threatening diabetes, cancer, or a number of other very serious medical conditions. Some babies do need to be delivered before they are able to survive outside of the womb, which occurs around 22 to 24 weeks of life. Those situations are considered a preterm delivery, not an abortion.
