The woman some people in 2020 wanted to see a heartbeat away from the presidency has just claimed that six-week-old unborn babies with beating hearts don’t have a heartbeat. In fact, Georgia gubernatorial hopeful Stacey Abrams (D) claimed Wednesday that the fetal heartbeats in question are just an illusion foisted on America by a patriarchy bent on controlling women’s bodies.
Fox News reported Thursday on Abrams’ revelation, which she expressed at an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta.
“‘There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,’ Abrams, who is running against incumbent Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, told the audience,” Fox related. “‘It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.’” (Clever, that patriarchy!

Abrams seemed to be responding to Georgia’s recently passed pro-life law. “The Georgia legislation, known as the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (Life) Act, or ‘heartbeat’ bill, bans abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected — sometimes as early as six weeks,” Fox continued.
