Radical leftist and Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams claimed that a fetal heartbeat at 6 weeks is a fabrication and just a “manufactured sound” in a newly released video.
Georgia Democrat Abrams can be seen spouting lies and misinformation about fetal heartbeat alongside other speakers in an unearthed video.
“There is no such thing as a heartbeat,” Abrams claimed.
“It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body away from her,” she said.
So men invented fake fetal heartbeats to control women. Ok.
And the same media that talks endless of “QAnon conspiracy theories” has nothing to say about the insane claim of a woman trying to become governor of our 8th largest state.
“Dr.” Stacey Abrams’s claim is incorrect.
According to Healthline, “a fetal heartbeat may first be detected by a vaginal ultrasound as early as 5 1/2 to 6 weeks after gestation. That’s when a fetal pole, the first visible sign of a developing embryo, can sometimes be seen.”
“But between 6 1/2 to 7 weeks after gestation, a heartbeat can be better assessed. That’s when your doctor may schedule your first abdominal or vaginal ultrasound to check for signs of a healthy, developing pregnancy.”
Radiologist Pradheep J. Shanker, quickly refuted the claims made by Abrams.
Dr. Stacey Abrams, MD has thoughts, people. @staceyabrams…if you wish to be educated, I’d be more than happy to show you the actual heartbeat of a six week old fetus. Its not an imaginary thing, no matter how much you want it to be. https://t.co/f6ASWJ7eUs— Pradheep J. Shanker (@Neoavatara) September 22, 2022
“What many doctors say that this is a ‘manufactured’ sound means that you can’t hear it with a stethoscope. Which is meaningless, because then…why even use a stethoscope? Why not just put your ear to the belly (as they did hundreds of years ago)?”
“Ultrasound picks up density and motion. It can certainly pick up cardiac contraction. And furthermore, ultrasound does NOT pick up electrical activity (that is another bit of misinformation).”
“If you want to support abortion, fine. But don’t lie about what you are doing,” Shanker said.
Needless to say, many other people also had “thoughts” about this very sick woman.

Science – A fetus heart is actively beating at 6 weeks and will have already beat nearly 16 million times by 15 weeks.
In fact, at 6 weeks’ the baby’s heart rate averages 98 beats per minute, detected by ultrasound.” pic.twitter.com/vcDgd6TG9L
I have a video of my son’s perfect heartbeat at 6 weeks— Ashley St. Clair (@stclairashley) September 22, 2022
That heartbeat was not “manufactured” by a man to control me– it was my baby, full of life, letting me know that he couldn’t wait to get here.
Stacey Abrams is an evil, miserable, childless woman. https://t.co/9DkP8jGsL9
Hearing my babies heartbeats at 6 weeks is hands down one of the most exciting, liberating and most beautiful moments of my entire life. Hands down.— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) September 22, 2022
Stacey Abrams is a very sick person to say this and somehow accuse doctors of faking fetal heartbeats. Full stop. https://t.co/oATAzuHgTA
When asked by the show’s host if she believed there should be any limitation on abortion, Abrams answered: ‘Viability is the metric and that if a woman’s health or life is endanger then viability extends until the time of birth.’
