Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate and voter fraud enthusiast Stacey Abrams rightfully drew intense mockery online after making the outlandish claim that a fetal heartbeat is a “manufactured sound” to undermine abortion.
“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams said in a viral video that originated at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”
Abrams was taking aim at the 2019 Georgia law that banned most abortions in the state after doctors can detect a fetal heartbeat, which usually happens around six weeks. The law went into effect this year after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
Conservatives and pro-life activists immediately pounced on Abrams for her evidence-free argument, pointing out that even the National Institutes of Health (NIH) admits a baby’s heartbeat can be detected as early as four weeks.
“Stacey Abrams claims there’s “no such thing as a heartbeat” at six weeks. NIH says a fetal heartbeat begins at week 4 – What happened to following the science?” tweeted Georgia Rep. Buddy Carter (R).
Dr. Roger Marshall wrote, “Hi, OBGYN here, unlike Stacey Abrams. This is factually incorrect. There’s no man behind the curtain. Babies have a real heartbeat at six weeks. Why do radical Dems hate unborn babies?”
Tom Fitton tweeted, “@staceyabrams officially opposes pregnancy monitoring technology designed to protect pregnant mothers and their unborn children?”
Alex Berenson added, “That sound you hear is Stacey Abrams’s campaign dragging a bunch of pathetic partisan “fact-checkers” off a cliff.”
Mollie Hemingway wrote, “Twitter’s vigorous election meddling on behalf of Democrats now includes going full flat earther and pushing abortion extremist Stacey Abrams ‘ACTUALLY babies don’t have hearts’ conspiracy theory.”
