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 Mark Kelly (D): Blake Masters “wants to pass a national ban on abortion.”

Politifact rating: Mostly True (During the primary campaign, Arizona U.S. Senate candidate Blake Masters backed a so-called federal personhood law, which is usually viewed as a national ban on abortion because it argues that abortion violates a fetus’s constitutional rights. After winning the GOP nomination, Masters continued to back a national ban, but he said it should only be for third-trimester abortions.)

Blake Masters still supports a national abortion ban, but during the third trimester
