Stacey Abrams says 'no such thing' as 6-week fetal heartbeat: 'Manufactured sound' | Fox News
Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, appearing on a panel this week, told the audience that fetal heartbeats at six weeks are 'manufactured.'

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said Wednesday there is "no such thing" as a fetal heartbeat at six weeks of gestation.

At an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta, Abrams claimed that the sound of such fetal heartbeats is "manufactured" by men seeking to "take control" of women.

"There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks," Abrams, who is running against incumbent Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, told the audience. "It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman's body."

Abrams seemed to be referring to Georgia's pro-life law passed after the overturn of Roe v. Wade this year.

The Georgia legislation, known as the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (Life) Act, or "heartbeat" bill, bans abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected — sometimes as early as six weeks. The Georgia law includes exceptions for rape and incest, as long as a police report is filed. It also allows for later abortions when the mother's life is at risk or a serious medical condition renders a fetus unviable.

The law passed in 2019, but a federal judge ruled it unconstitutional and blocked it. A federal appeals court overturned the lower court's ruling, allowing the law to take effect on July 20.

Fox News Digital reached out to Abrams' office for clarification, but did not receive a response.

Abrams — who was pro-life until the age of thirty when she began considering a run for office — has made an aggressive push to earn pro-choice bona fides in her gubernatorial campaign.

During an appearance on "The View" last week, host Alyssa Farah Griffin asked Abrams what limitations she would support on abortion access. Abrams responded that a woman should have a right to abortion all the way until birth if her "health or life" is endangered.

Abrams proves she is just too dumb to ever hold office.

I wonder how many Democrats will tell her to 'follow the science'?

If THAT is the 'main issue' then what the fuck is your gal doing talking about fetal heartbeats?

Looks bad when I say it like that, huh?

Is a 'fetal heartbeat' really a heartbeat at 6 weeks?

Rather, at six weeks of pregnancy, an ultrasound can detect "a little flutter in the area that will become the future heart of the baby," said Dr. Saima Aftab, medical director of the Fetal Care Center at Nicklaus Children's Hospital in Miami. This flutter happens because the group of cells that will become the future "pacemaker" of the heart gain the capacity to fire electrical signals, she said.

She is right, according to science.  No actual "heart" means no "heart" beat.

he is right, according to science

Can you show where  "science" proves a conspiracy to corrupt ultrasound machines to create a fake sound in order to control women?

Or are you just going to ignore the bat shit crazy conspiracy and deflect to  a semantic debate over what constitutes a heartbeat?.

Can you show me someone who is so quick to troll a comment, that they don't even bother to read the comment they are trolling, or the article linked therein?

Yeah, you probably should have read Abrams comment before claiming science proves her correct.

Take it as a learning experience.

Follow the science only applies when it fits it's about control.  In this instance it doesn't fit their narrative.

This Q-Anon level crazy.   She believes some cabal has corrupted ultrasound machines worldwide to control women.

Stacey Abrams, by virtue of this spectacularly stupid statement, proves she isn't fit to represent women.

Or men.

Democrats can't define what a woman or a man is.

Abrams must be representing the undefinable.

So, what's the difference?  We seem to be moving toward abortion bans after 15 weeks.  While there can be reasonable debate over 15 weeks or 20 weeks the bottom line is that abortion during the later term of pregnancy is going to be abolished.

That's will inevitably lead to a fight over Constitutional rights for the unborn.  Establishing Constitutional rights for the unborn will also clarify the rights, responsibilities, and obligations for both the mother and father.  It's beginning to appear as though the political opposition to acknowledging Constitutional rights for the unborn is motivated by a desire to avoid responsibilities.  Rights for the unborn would mean that pre-natal care would be a right for the unborn rather than a right for women.  Both the mother and father would have responsibilities to provide pre-natal care to protect the rights of the unborn.  Apparently those responsibilities are what proponents of no-limit abortion fear most.

Abrams, the quintessential political hypocrite.    Pro life until she ran for office and then she switched to shill for votes.

Planned Parenthood changes website after Stacey Abrams's heartbeat comments (washingtonexaminer.com)

Planned Parenthood has quietly changed its website to match comments Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams made Thursday about fetal heartbeats.

But, Planned Parenthood ....knows everything on this subject, why change know ?

This is Stacy Abrams scientific knowledge:

"THE" Scientific Fact coming From Stacy Abrams own mouth !

"It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman's body."

The dumb idea that detecting something that can be identified as a fetal heartbeat early in a woman's pregnancy as the justification for denying her the right to terminate was "manufactured" by radical antiabortion activists. It plays on emotions instead of actual scientific knowledge of fetal development.
