Stacey Abrams has claimed that a fetal heartbeat is an “artificial sound” used to allow men to “control a woman’s body” and restrict abortion rights.
A new video is being circulated on social media Georgia The Democratic candidate for governor shares her views on abortion.
“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” she said. “It’s an artificial voice designed to convince people that a man has the right to control a woman’s body.”
Pro-life Abrams was targeting laws banning abortion after six weeks, when doctors could hear the “fetal heartbeat.”
The term refers to the electrical signal picked up on the ultrasound machines from electrical activity in the fetus, not the actual heartbeat caused by the opening and closing of the heart valves. The sounds can only be detected with an invasive transvaginal ultrasound.
The statement comes a week after Abrams revealed on The View that she supports abortions “up to the time of birth” in some cases.
Stacy Abrams (second from left), the Democratic candidate for governor of Georgia, said she believes the fetal heartbeat is an “artificial sound” used to restrict abortion rights.
Abrams targeted the state’s controversial “heartbeat” law, which bans most abortions for six weeks, when a doctor can detect a fetus’s heartbeat.
Georgia is among the nine states that have reinstated or are working to restore controversial “heartbeat laws” after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade over the summer.
A 2019 Georgia law prohibits most abortions for six weeks, when a doctor can detect a fetus’s heartbeat. Since most women do not know they are pregnant before six weeks, the law effectively prohibits all abortions.

“At six weeks pregnant, there are no valves,” she said. NPR In March where she explained that the heart is not forming by then.
“The flash we see on ultrasound early in the pregnancy development is actually electrical activity, and the sound you hear is actually being made by the ultrasound machine.”
Last week, Abrams told The View hosts that she supports abortions ‘up to the time of birth’ in some cases, saying the issue is medical rather than political.
Abrams, who said she grew up pro-life, offered her new views on abortion during her show last week.
When asked by the show’s neo-conservative anchor, Alyssa Farrah Griffin, if she thought there should be any restrictions on abortion, Abrams said: “Feasibility is the measure, and if a woman’s health or life is at stake, feasibility extends to the time of her birth. .’
Abrams added that abortion is a “medical decision, not a political one” and described the various state restrictions on the practice as “arbitrary.”
The situation is a shift away from Abrams’ previous views on the issue, in which she criticized a college friend who was considering an abortion.
However, her views changed once she began considering running for office, according to A . The New York Times Profile of Abrams.
She admitted equally to State of the Union on CNN in August, saying that she had begun to reassess her religious upbringing and pro-life position in college.
I was against abortion until I went to university. There, I met a friend who shared my faith values, but we started to have conversations about what reproductive and abortion care really is.
