Georgia Democrat running for Governor this year made the outlandish claim that babies do not have heartbeats at 6 weeks. According to Stacey Abrams, it’s a ‘manufactured sound’ produced so that men can steal rights away from women. Not that it needs debunking, but for obvious reason, doctors have come forward to call BS on Abram’s.
Doctors like, Dr. Tara Sander Lee, who studied heart development at Harvard Medical School and currently serves as the Director of Life Sciences at the Charlotte Lozier Institute, was astonished by Abrams’ anti-science claims.“Stacey Abrams is completely ignoring scientific fact,” Lee began.
Lee then provided legitimate scientific findings that squashed Abrams’ lies, first explaining that “the heart is the first functioning organ in a developing human being” and that it begins beating “just 22-days after fertilization.”
After destroying Abrams’ basic claim, Lee then commented on the motive behind the leftist media covering for Abrams, saying:
“This is the playbook that they use. The media can perform these olympic level semantic gymnastics all they want but most Americans instinctively understand that a developing human organ which beats rhythmically and pumps blood through the body is in fact a heart. And I think they do this because if they can convince themselves and others that there’s actually not a living human being with a beating heart, its the only way that they can justify their support for advocating for the right to kill a baby.”
Lee added that that same media is painting Senator Lindsey Graham’s 15-week abortion bill as “extreme,” despite the fact that “47 out of 50 European nations limit elective abortion after 15-weeks,” making Graham’s bill far from “extreme.”
It should have to be said how ridiculous it is to claim that the sound of a baby’s heart is just ‘manufactured’ by people to steal rights. It shouldn’t have to be said but, here we are…
