A fact check on Live Action content cites a doctor who openly criticizes Live Action and founder Lila Rose, despite a requirement that fact-checkers be unbiased.

“The **** Bible” author and abortionist Dr. Jennifer Gunter has openly criticized both Live Action and Lila Rose on Twitter, calling Rose “a forced birther who knows nothing about medical care.”

Gunter - September - People - Abortion - Facebook

Gunter also tweeted on September 14 that “people who lie about abortion should be banned from Facebook for spreading hate,” and on Aug. 31 that Rose is “ignorant and evil.”

But Gunter is cited in an updated version of a Facebook fact-check on videos posted by both Live Action and Lila Rose.

Aug - Fact - Check - Health - Feedback

The Aug. 30 fact check, published in Health Feedback, targeted an August 9 video that included the statement “abortion is never medically necessary.” The fact checked also dinged a separate video shared by Live Action, featuring Dr. Kendra Kolb also saying that “abortion is never medically necessary.”

The fact check has been updated since the original was posted August 30.

Version - Fact-check - Abortionists - Daniel - Grossman

While the first version of the fact-check only cited abortionists Daniel Grossman, and Robyn Schickler, the updated version from September 11 lists Dr. Alexis Shub as a fact-checker and cites Gunter under the header “read more,” referring to Gunter’s January 29 article, “Abortions at or after 24 weeks are sometimes needed medically. Anyone who says otherwise is wrong.”

Neither Grossman nor Shub responded to requests for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation. Gunter’s publicists have also not yet responded to requests for comment.
