FAKE-NEWS: Circulating Story Falsely Claims Pro-Choice Activist Has Had 27 Abortions

by Brett M. Christensen

According to a report that is being shared via social media, a 34-year-old pro-choice activist in California has officially broken a world record after receiving her 27th abortion.

Supposedly, the woman had her first abortion when she was only nine years old. The report claims that “abortions have since been the ideal solution for her since she reacts negatively to birth control and emergency contraceptive pills”.

The article features images that supposedly depict the woman in a bed during her latest abortion at a health center.

However, the claims in the report are utter nonsense. The pictured woman has not had 27 abortions and the story is just a work of fiction.

The report comes from the notorious fake-news “satirical” website World News Daily Report (WNDR). None of the material published on the site should be taken seriously.  WNDR includes the following disclaimer in the footer of its website:

World News Daily Report assumes all responsibility for the satirical nature of its articles and for the fictional nature of their content. All characters appearing in the articles in this website – even those based on real people – are entirely fictional and any resemblance between them and any person, living, dead or undead, is purely a miracle.

In spite of the disclaimer, many people think that the site’s reports are genuine news and share them via social media.

The images used in the bogus report are taken from stock photo galleries and childbirth-related website posts.

It is wise to verify any strange or unusual “news” stories that come your way before sharing them.

Importance Notice

After considerable thought and with an ache in my heart, I have decided that the time has come to close down the Hoax-Slayer website.

These days, the site does not generate enough revenue to cover expenses, and I do not have the financial resources to sustain it going forward.

Moreover, I now work long hours in a full-time and physically taxing job, so maintaining and managing the website and publishing new material has become difficult for me.

And finally, after 18 years of writing about scams and hoaxes, I feel that it is time for me to take my fingers off the keyboard and focus on other projects and pastimes.

When I first started Hoax-Slayer, I never dreamed that I would still be working on the project all these years later or that it would become such an important part of my life. It's been a fantastic and engaging experience and one that I will always treasure.

I hope that my work over the years has helped to make the Internet a little safer and thwarted the activities of at least a few scammers and malicious pranksters.

A Big Thank You

I would also like to thank all of those wonderful people who have supported the project by sharing information from the site, contributing examples of scams and hoaxes, offering suggestions, donating funds, or helping behind the scenes.

I would especially like to thank David White for his tireless contribution to the Hoax-Slayer Facebook Page over many years. David's support has been invaluable, and I can not thank him enough.

Closing Date

Hoax-Slayer will still be around for a few weeks while I wind things down. The site will go offline on May 31, 2021. While I will not be publishing any new posts, you can still access existing material on the site until the date of closure.

Thank you, one and all!
