We’re a bit confused; as we just reported, Twitter noted that Stacey Abrams was trending for claiming men created a heartbeat sound for a six-week unborn baby to control women’s bodies. However, Twitter added some context, saying that NBC News had confirmed that “doctors agree one doesn’t exist during this early stage of pregnancy” (except for the doctors who chimed in and said yes, you can hear a heartbeat — cardiac activity if you please — at six weeks.
So what are we to make of this segment from NBC’s TODAY Show in which the hosts continually refer to a 32-week-old fetus as a “baby”? A lot of media outlets are covering this study Thursday, which aimed to understand “the earliest evidence for fetal abilities to sense and discriminate different flavors.”
These images from researchers show that babies in the womb can possibly react to flavor. pic.twitter.com/RVB7DsXNoc

This is not science. Science is on the side of abortion. Therefore, this is not true. Trust the science people. Don’t cling to your outdated beliefs.

Stacey Abrams just said a heartbeat at six weeks was special effects created to keep men in charge

A “baby” when it makes for a cute news story.
A “fetus” when justifying killing them. https://t.co/SfLwK6BMX6

But @staceyabrams might think that’s manufactured by men

If they react that way to foods, it almost like they might even be able to feel pain. Imagine that…….

Hey @staceyabrams you might want to look at this.

Almost like the babies have their OWN personality to determine their OWN tastes separate from their mother. Hmmmmm.

Thank you for affirming that’s a baby in the womb.

I was told by very reliable people that these are just clumps of cells.

You guys are sooo close to getting it.

The media has really slipped up, because the study they’re reporting on mentions only fetuses, not babies. Fortunately Democrats trust the science, as the House’s bill put no limits on abortion.
