Analysis / Bias
In review, Abort73 publishes news and anti-abortion propaganda such as this: All abortion methods violate the most basic medical tenet: “Do No Harm.” This story is mostly sourced back to Abort73 or Amazon affiliate book links (sales). The website also lists facts about abortion that is culled from mostly credible sources. Abort73 is not a fake news website, nor a conspiracy site, they are simply a right wing christian site that advocates for anti-abortion policy.
