“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks. It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body,” Democratic candidate for Georgia governor, Stacy Abrams, proclaimed in a recently surfaced video.
Abrams’ statement is as absurd as it is clearly untrue. Abrams’ stance is so absurd that even podcaster Joe Rogan blasted her anti-scientific comments, saying, “when you have people like Stacey Abrams saying that a fetal heartbeat is an illusion… It’s established biology. This is wild, ideological, crazy, cult talk.”
Rogan, who hosts one of the most popular podcasts in the world, is no Pro-Life activist. In a viral video he recently debated Pro-Life CEO of the Babylon Bee Seth Dillon about abortion. Yet, even Rogan can see the open insanity of denying a preborn baby’s heartbeat is a “manufactured sound.”
“Just that statement alone should discredit you to the point where people should never listen to anything you ever say again,” Rogan added. “Who’s manufacturing … what does that mean?”
It is a universally acknowledged scientific fact that preborn babies have observable beating hearts by six weeks’ gestation. John Hopkins Medicine even posits that an unborn baby’s heart begins beating by the fourth week of pregnancy. Even Planned Parenthood, until very recently, admitted on their website that unborn babies have beating hearts by week six.
Rogan was equally shocked to hear that Stacy Abrams also supports unlimited abortion to the moment of birth.
“She supports no limits on abortion,” Rogan began, “Um, that’s crazy, too. Because you’re saying, like, eight months and four weeks. Or eight months and three weeks, rather, right before the kid’s coming out? That’s okay?”
Though extreme, Abrams’ radical abortion position is now the norm in the Democratic party. Even Texas Democrats, including candidate for governor Beto O’Rourke, support unlimited abortion till birth. Though Democrats pretend to have widespread, majority support for their abortion positions, most Americans firmly disagree with the notion that abortion should be legal through all nine months without limitation.
A recent Gallup poll found that 52% of Americans believe abortion should be illegal in all or most circumstances. While an overwhelming 81% of Americans believe abortion should be illegal in the third trimester.
Yet, believing abortion to be their golden ticket to success in the midterm elections, Democrats have only kept ramping up their extreme, anti-scientific abortion rhetoric.
Pro-Lifers must respond confidently and unafraid, to be a resounding voice for reason and morality.
While some conservatives, including certain weak Texas Republicans, are watering down or changing their Pro-Life views in fear of losing votes, Pro-Lifers must stand strong and work harder than ever to defend Life so that not an inch of this past year’s historic victories will be lost.
