BuzzFeed News: Facebook Took Down A Fact-Check Of An Anti-Abortion Video After Republicans Complained

BuzzFeed News: Facebook Took Down A Fact-Check Of An Anti-Abortion Video After Republicans Complained. “Though [Lila] Rose said abortion is never medically necessary, the fact-check pointed out several medical conditions including pre-eclampsia, HELLP syndrome, and placenta previa can make abortion necessary to save a mother’s life. Rose has said in these scenarios, a doctor could instead deliver a baby early. But that’s only possible when a fetus has developed enough to survive outside the womb, typically around 24 weeks, the fact-check said. The doctors also pointed to the case of Savita Halappanavar, a woman in Ireland who died after being denied an abortion.”
