Stacey Abrams Calls Fetal Heartbeats Fake
Democrat Stacey Abrams said recently that the heartbeats of unborn children are not real but are in fact manufactured to oppress women. We should be praying against this misinformation.
From The Daily Wire. Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams said in a recently surfaced video that at six weeks, unborn babies’ heartbeats aren’t real but a “manufactured sound designed” to take away women’s rights. …
“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams said while serving on a panel. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body in place of her.” …

It’s unclear how the heartbeat is actually a “manufactured sound,” as described by Abrams, and who exactly is manufacturing it.
However, many scholars, scientists, and doctors agree that an unborn child’s heart typically starts beating around six weeks gestation. Peer-reviewed science has found the following, the nonprofit Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) has outlined:
- The heart is actively beating at 6 weeks. Between conception and birth the baby’s heart will beat approximately 54 million times.
- The baby’s average heart rate is 98 BPM. This will rise to 175 BPM by 9 weeks’ gestation. …
“While some people falsely claim that a preborn baby at 6 weeks’ gestation is just a clump of cells, science demonstrates the baby is already a complex human being,” asserted Dr. Tara Sander Lee, a senior fellow and director of life sciences at CLI. “A preborn baby’s heart is actively beating at 6 weeks and will have already beat nearly 16 million times by 15 weeks. In fact, at 6 weeks’ gestation, the baby’s heart rate is about 98 beats per minute, which can be easily detected by ultrasound.” …
