Stacey Abrams, the Democrat running for governor of Georgia, is coming under fire for saying that there is ‘no such thing’ as a 6-week fetal heartbeat.
Democrats call themselves the party of science, but this is a denial of science.
This is probably not going to play well with conservative Georgia voters, either.

Stacey Abrams says ‘no such thing’ as 6-week fetal heartbeat: ‘Manufactured sound’
Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said Wednesday there is “no such thing” as a fetal heartbeat at six weeks of gestation.
At an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta, Abrams claimed that the sound of such fetal heartbeats is “manufactured” by men seeking to “take control” of women.
“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams, who is running against incumbent Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, told the audience. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”
Abrams seemed to be referring to Georgia’s pro-life law passed after the overturning of Roe v. Wade this year.
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. The Georgia law includes exceptions for rape and incest, as long as a police report is filed. It also allows for later abortions when the mother’s life is at risk or a serious medical condition renders a fetus unviable.

Democrats keep pushing further and further left on abortion.
They clearly think this is their ace in the hole for the midterms.
They may end up being surprised in November to find that it’s not.
