Get Facebook To Remove The Skeptical OB

Facebook has recently started removing the pages and groups of people they claim to be spreading “fake news” or “false science,” yet somehow, the page entitled The Skeptical OB stays up. This page regularly spreads false information (proven time and time again by science). It has been quoted as saying “rape is natural” and a “successful evolutionary strategy.”

Possibly the most important, and disgraceful part of the entire issue is that the person behind the page is NOT a licensed obstetrician. Yet Facebook allows them to parade themselves as a medical professional. This has the opportunity to lead SO many unknowing women into parenting traps that may increase risk factors or even cause harm. This will have an impact on the health of mothers and children GLOBALLY and should not be taken lightly. This is a blog page. Giving out medical advice, posting racist, outlandish false equivalencies to further divide women in an effort to build a following and make money. 

Per the Massachusetts state medical board (which is where this blogger originally obtained a medical license), when your medical license lapses you are NO LONGER a doctor and you are considered to be illegally practicing medicine if you even call yourself one. So how does this page get away with calling themselves an obstetrician if the MA state board treats lapsed licenses as a suspension or revocation?

The only resolution to this issue is for Facebook to require this page to change its name, stating clearly that it IS NOT IN FACT run by a licensed medical professional, or to remove this fake doctor’s page and take down the associated groups in an effort to stop allowing the widespread sharing of false science, under facade of being a medical professional, in turn, misleading vulnerable women.

 

I have been publicly threatened, baited, and attacked by this person. My name has been shared to the page, and people have consistently left false reviews on my business page due to it. This goes to show that the venom spewed from this page is harmful and should be stopped. Please help protect women by signing and sharing this petition.
