Stacy Abrams Propagates Medical Disinformation That Fetal Heartbeat Is a "Manufactured Sound" Created By a Conspiracy of Doctors To Make Women Think That Babies Have Heartbeats

This is a medical conspiracy theory, which the tech monopolies and legacy propaganda media outlets say they're committed to eradicating.


Ultrasounds aren't real. The female penis, now that is real.

Don't worry, though: Stacy Abrams' "interesting theory" will not only not result in her being censored by the leftwing media and the tech monopolies, but leftwing media is already claiming that yeah, maybe the fetal heartbeat is, in a way, a made-up, imaginary sound.

Glenn Kessler -- the Nazi descendant who serves as the Washington Post's "fact-checker" -- actually claims that this Medical Conspiracy Theory is... accurate!

He claims that because the ultrasound is detecting mere "electrical activity" in the heart, that doesn't actually count as a "fetal heartbeat."

Electrical activity... you mean like 120-volt?

Or do you mean... nervous system activation of the heart muscles?

Um, what would that "electrical activity" be, "fact-checker," except the firing of the heart muscles to, you know, beat?

The heart isn't the brain, you know. It's not the hamstring muscle. It does one thing. Electrical activity causes its chambers to contract and pulse blood through the body.

This whole claim originates from one pro-abortion "doctor" from the pro-abortion state media outlet NPR:

"At six weeks of gestation, those valves don't exist," she explains. "The flickering that we're seeing on the ultrasound that early in the development of the pregnancy is actually electrical activity, and the sound that you 'hear' is actually manufactured by the ultrasound machine."

That's why "the term 'fetal heartbeat' is pretty misleading," says Dr. Jennifer Kerns, an OB-GYN and associate professor at the University of California, San Francisco.

"What we're really detecting is a grouping of cells that are initiating some electrical activity," she explains. "In no way is this detecting a functional cardiovascular system or a functional heart."

This is what they always claim -- "Well, it's not a complete baby yet, so we can abort it."

"It's not a fully-formed heart yet, so we're going to say that what is obviously the firing of heart nerves activating heart muscle is not a 'heart beat,' so we can abort it."

This is a bad faith claim. If the ban were at 24 weeks, when there were "those valves" present and you couldn't argue this wasn't a fully-formed heart, they'd just come up with some other reason why this doesn't count as a baby and therefore why you can abort it.

Someone pointed out that he's basically claiming that because you're using a medical device to hear something undetectable by the unaided human ear, it's not really a sound and it's not really happening. And by this logic, nothing heard through the doctor's stethoscope is "real," either.
