Skip to comments.Stacey Abrams Claims Heartbeats Of Unborn Children Are A ‘Manufactured Sound’ To Control Women

For millions of mothers and fathers each year, going to a doctor’s office to hear their unborn child’s heartbeat is one of the most important milestones in early pregnancy. But prominent Democrat Stacey Abrams publicly claimed ultrasound technology that enables parents to hear that heartbeat is instead a patriarchal plot to control women’s bodies by creating a “manufactured sound.”
“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said during a Tuesday event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Georgia. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”
Abrams pushed the unsubstantiated conspiracy theory that in utero baby heartbeats are actually manufactured by misogynistic male politicians in the context of wanting Georgia’s “heartbeat bill” repealed.
In 2019, Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed into law HB 481, the fetal heartbeat bill, which outlaws abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected. Abrams also said the legislation shouldn’t be referred to as the “fetal heartbeat bill” because the name is “medically false” and “biologically a lie.”
According to the American Pregnancy Association, however, a baby’s heartbeat can usually be detected between six and seven weeks. Even Planned Parenthood, the country’s largest abortion provider, admits babies develop a “very basic beating heart” by five to six weeks of pregnancy.
Abrams is not alone in promoting the conspiracy theory. Recently, following the success of state legislation offering some protections for unborn children with a detectable heartbeat, some abortion extremists have attempted to assert that fetal heartbeats aren’t real. The coordinated campaign to deny scientific reality took off in February 2022 when The New York Times began to claim pro-abortion “experts” are starting to doubt the long-held reality that unborn children have detectable heartbeats.
Abortion radicals argue that because an unborn baby’s heart is not fully developed and its beats are faint, it isn’t actually a heartbeat. The campaign is reminiscent of a growing movement to claim the earth is actually flat. But the human heart grows throughout childhood, only reaching its full size when a person stops growing.
Democrats have been focusing on the topic of abortion under the belief that it will help their electoral prospects in November. In June, the Supreme Court issued its Dobbs ruling, which overturned the controversial Roe v. Wade decision which forbade nearly all restrictions on ending unborn human life.
But polling shows the vast majority of Americans support at least some protections for unborn children, particularly later in pregnancy. Democrats, including Abrams, oppose any and all restrictions on abortion.
In addition to denying the reality of heartbeats in unborn children, Abrams is also known for denying the reality of the election she lost when she previously ran for governor of Georgia in 2018.
Abrams is currently polling 6.6 points behind incumbent Kemp. It is unclear whether she will deny the reality of a second loss to the governor should she lose in November.
I think she probably lost the bulk of black female votes over the age of forty. They aren’t that stupid, and would consider her comments to be inappropriate.
If a man said that, there would be lots of people calling him detached and uncompassionate, even inhuman.
Enough is enough of this stupid fat slob.
How can anybody be that stupid?
How can anybody be stupid enough to vote for her?
When does the parading of politicians incompetent fools get stopped in our nation!
Foreign news are having a ballpark with these idots.....there’s far far too many.
Oh, most definitely. She definitely strikes me as someone whose fetal development was poisoned by drugs and alcohol. Stacey Abrams is a real mess, a disgrace to her race.
For Stacy Abrams we’re going to have to go with steel cable (called ‘wire rope’) run through an eye fitting on its bitter end (phrase comes from rope attached to a harpoon attached to a whale), ‘cause no other rope strong enough to support her fat mASS is small enough to put around her neck. 5/8” should do the trick...and we’ll need a crane, lamppost, or tree limb won’t do.
THEN WE CAN LISTEN FOR HER HEARTBEAT!...IF THERE’S A WAY TO PICK IT UP THROUGH HER FAT!
“If a man said that, there would be lots of people calling him detached and uncompassionate, even inhuman.”
Tha’d be true even if a woman said it, but as a Commiecrat...
“Stacey Abrams is a real mess, a disgrace to her race.”
What is that? Pimlico in the fourth?
What happened to the party of science?
Even though she looks continually pregnant she isn’t. She’s fat. She has no children
She’s an idiot. Any mother can tell you otherwise
Her dad is a pastor. Her mama is a church lady. I’m sure they’re ashamed and praying for her
Ms. Abrams is proof that just because a person goes to school doesn’t mean they are educated. Can’t help but wonder if she knows Rep. Hank Johnson who expressed his concern that Guam would get so populated it would tip over.
Well, I think she did go to a public school. So this is probably the best they could accomplish
Black women sure do love baby murdering.
This is not stupidity, although the ghettopod is beneath stupid, this is a standard woke communist tactic. Just make up a big lie about someone or something (Trump is a racist) and yell it out over and over. Cruder than the Goebbels method but the same goal. Discredit the person or item targeted.
