    Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams claimed on Sunday that "it is a fallacy we know exactly when a pregnancy starts."

    Abrams has vehemently opposed Georgia's "heartbeat" law banning abortions after six weeks or when a fetal heartbeat can be detected. Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," Abrams was asked what she would consider an acceptable limit for abortion restrictions. But Abrams not only deflected, she refused to accept any "arbitrary" limits on abortion, saying that the point of viability itself is a decision made by a doctor.

    "What I've always said is that abortion is a medical decision that should be made by a doctor and the woman, and that the point of viability, as determined by a doctor, should always take into consideration the life and health of the woman," Abrams said. "That should be the standard. But the arbitrary standards of timelines ignore the medical reality that it is a fallacy we know exactly when a pregnancy starts, that we know exactly where we are in the system - I mean in the term."

    "What doctors will tell you is that they need to make decisions based on the woman they are treating," she continued. "And what women will tell you is that they need the right to make the medical decisions that can save their lives and save their ability to control their bodies and their futures."

    Abrams has made a series of public comments espousing radical and uncompromising pro-abortion views.

    In September, Abrams claimed that a fetal heartbeat detectable by ultrasound equipment was a "manufactured sound" used as a tool to oppress women.

    "There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks," Abrams said during a panel discussion last month. "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."

    In a previous "Fox News Sunday" appearance in June, Abrams rejected a federal court decision that upheld the "heartbeat" law. "I do not [support the decision]," Abrams responded. "And I would reject the notion that this is the will of the people. This is a political decision made by the narrowest of margins and done to satisfy an even narrower constituency."

    "I believe that should be a choice made between a doctor and a woman and in consultation with her family," she added. "But I think the challenge that we have is that we keep putting this in a political space."

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.
