‘CRAZY CULT TALK’ Joe Rogan Calls Out Stacey Abrams For Her Recent Comments, “This Is Wild, Ideological, Crazy, Cult Talk,”

The Democrat candidate for Georgia’s gubernatorial race Stacy Abrams recently claimed that the fetal heartbeat you hear on an ultrasound at six weeks is not a heartbeat.
She actually called it a “manufactured sound.”
Where are the fact-checkers?!
Joe Rogan isn’t buying it! On his Spotify podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” the host called her out on her remarks. Rogan was speaking with stand-up comic Dave Smith on his Wednesday show.
Rogan referred to her statements as “wild” and “ideological.”
“When you have people like Stacey Abrams saying that a fetal heartbeat is an illusion,” Rogan said. “It’s established biology [that it is real],” he continued. “This is wild, ideological, crazy, cult talk.”
As part of her campaign for governor of Georgia, Abrams participated in a panel discussion at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta on September 20.
During the discussion, Abrams claimed “There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks. It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”
The response from both the pro-life and pro-abortion sides was fast and furious. According to the American Pregnancy Association, a fetal heartbeat can be detected by a vaginal ultrasound at between 5 1/2 and 6 1/2 weeks, when the fetal pole can be seen. The fetal pole is the first visible sign of a developing embryo.
Johns Hopkins Medicine states on its website that the “heart is beating” for a fetus by “the end of four weeks.”
Planned Parenthood took the opposite approach and changed its website when it thought no one was looking.
According to an archive of the page from July, it used to state that at under five to six weeks of pregnancy, “a very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop.” Now it states, “a part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity. It sounds like a heartbeat on an ultrasound, but it’s not a fully-formed heart — it’s the earliest stage of the heart developing.”
We often hear the phrase, “Change the language, change the culture.” Our politicians are using this strategy to their advantage. When people change words and their meaning, it’s a way to get others to favor their position.
Stacy Abrams is doing just this. She is trying to shift large swaths of people towards her ideology. And as Joe Rogan also pointed out, her ideology includes no limits on abortion.
“She [Abrams] supports no limits on abortion,” Rogan continued. “Umm, that’s crazy, too.”
“Because you’re saying, like, eight months and four weeks. Or eight months and three weeks, rather, right before the kid’s coming out? That’s okay?”
Rogan and his guest were having a larger discussion about how people are being conditioned not to think. What happened to giving people the facts and letting them decide?
