    Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams said in a recently surfaced video that at six weeks, unborn babies' heartbeats aren't real but a "manufactured sound designed" to take away women's rights.

    Abrams is again campaigning to be governor of Georgia after a failed run in 2018. Notably, the Democrat refused to traditionally concede the race to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, suggesting "voter suppression" and a broken system.

    "There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks," Abrams said while serving on a panel. "It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman's body in place of her."

    WATCH:


    It's unclear how the heartbeat is actually a "manufactured sound," as described by Abrams, and who exactly is manufacturing it.

    However, many scholars, scientists, and doctors agree that an unborn child's heart typically starts beating around six weeks gestation. Peer-reviewed science has found the following, the nonprofit Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) has outlined:

  • The heart is actively beating at 6 weeks. Between conception and birth the baby's heart will beat approximately 54 million times.
  • The baby's average heart rate is 98 BPM. This will rise to 175 BPM by 9 weeks' gestation.
  • The presence of a heartbeat at 6-8 weeks' gestation correlates with a live birth rate of 98% in normal pregnancies without intervention.
  • The brain has divided into three primary sections responsible for sensing and decision-making, moving and tracking objects, and vital body functions.
  • Eyes, ears, and nose start forming.

    "While some people falsely claim that a preborn baby at 6 weeks' gestation is just a clump of cells, science demonstrates the baby is already a complex human being," asserted Dr. Tara Sander Lee, a senior fellow and director of life sciences at CLI. "A preborn baby's heart is actively beating at 6 weeks and will have already beat nearly 16 million times by 15 weeks. In fact, at 6 weeks' gestation, the baby's heart rate is about 98 beats per minute, which can be easily detected by ultrasound."

    Abrams might be referring to the argument that the heartbeat of a child at six weeks gestation is actually more accurately described as "cardiac activity" since the developing heart doesn't have all four chambers yet.

    Notably, Merriam-Webster defines "cardiac" as "of, relating to, situated near, or acting on the heart."

    Abrams was widely mocked online for the bizarre commentary, with some likening it to a conspiracy theory.

    "Stacey Abrams is pushing a theory here that ultrasound machines, used in hospitals now all over the world, were designed by a cabal of men, to manufacture a sound beat on purpose, in order to convince women to keep unwanted pregnancies," conservative columnist Stephen L. Miller reacted. "This is beyond QAnon s***."

    "She's not only an election denier, she's a science and life denier," Daily Wire host Ben Shapiro commented.

    The Federalist's Sean Davis said of Abrams, "She's a BlueAnon nutjob who belongs in an insane asylum."

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
