Each day Media Bias Fact Check selects and publishes fact checks from around the world. We only utilize fact-checkers that are either a signatory of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) or have been verified as credible by MBFC. Further, we review each fact check for accuracy before publishing. We fact-check the fact-checkers and let you know their bias. When appropriate, we explain the rating and/or offer our own rating if we disagree with the fact-checker. (D. Van Zandt)

|Claim by Kathy Hochul (D): Lee Zeldin “voted for abortion bans even when the mother’s health is at risk.”
PolitiFact rating: Mostly True (Zeldin voted for a bill that prohibited abortions after 20 weeks with narrow exceptions. The bill included an exception to preserve the life of the pregnant woman. It did not include an exception if the woman’s health was at risk.)
|FALSE||Claim by Dave Yost (R): Pregnant 10-Year-Old Girl Could Get an Abortion in Ohio.
Newsweek rating: False (no she couldn’t as she was beyond 6 weeks and hence had to travel to Indiana.)
|FALSE||Claim by Lauren Boebert (R): U.S. Rep. Mayra Flores is “the first Mexican-born member of Congress.”
Politifact rating: False (Newly elected U.S. Rep. Mayra Flores, R-Texas, is not the first Mexican-born member of Congress. At least seven other members were born in Mexico, and three are currently serving in the House of Representatives. However, she is the first Mexican-born woman in Congress.)
|Claim by Jeff O’Donnell on Conservative Daily: Jeff O’Donnell Unmasks The Steal Before Our Eyes.
Lead Stories rating: False (The claim is based on an input error (which was corrected) in the unofficial vote tallies counties supply to the public.)
|Claim by Emily Compagno (Fox News): In Kenya, “pregnant women can’t leave the house, so they absolutely have no constructive right to vote.”
Politifact rating: Pants on Fire (Pregnant women in Kenya can vote and are given priority and regularly moved to the front of voting lines.)
|FALSE||(International: United Kingdom): Claim by The Expose: A new study and Pfizer documents prove that Covid-19 vaccination is going to cause mass depopulation through infertility and death.
Full Fact rating: False (These documents show none of these things. Covid-19 vaccines do not harm fertility.)
