Various gunmen in the city of Chicago shot 41 people this weekend. As a result four victims died. According to CBS Chicago, five of the victims were under 18 years of age.

First, at 5 PM Friday one 15-year-old boy and another 16-year-old boy came under fire while walking down the street. One took a bullet to the shoulder and the other took one in his foot. Both remained in good condition at Loretto Hospital.

Next, a little bit before 11 AM Saturday a man committed an armed robbery. He shot a 68-year-old man over his belongings. His victim survived.

Then, some hours later at 1:45 PM, a man was driving with his 1-year-old son in the back seat. Suddenly a gunman in a maroon sedan began shooting at his car. While neither received gunshots, the child in the back cut his feet as a result of the broken glass.

In addition, another vehicular shooting happened early Sunday. Police received reports of a shootout between a Toyota Camry and another vehicle. A lone K9 Unit officer happened to see the Camry and hear the gunshots while stopped at a red light.

So, the officer revved the engine and turned on its emergency lights. As a result, the Camry blew past the red light, hitting the back of a Nissan Rogue. A passenger was subsequently ejected from the vehicle upon impact. The car was full, and one passenger died. Those in the Toyota Camry escaped on foot.

Stacy Abrams: ‘No such thing as heartbeat at 6 weeks’, ‘manufactured’ for men to ‘take control of a woman’s body’

“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams claimed during an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta last week. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

As National Review reports, even her own man-hating rhetoric is antithetical to the website of Planned Parenthood which said a “very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop” during the fifth to sixth week of pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood later amended its website to more closely reflect pro-abortion messaging against heartbeat laws, which ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Now the site says a “part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity” during that time.

Abrams is running for governor in Georgia in a rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp. Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by more than 54,000 votes. Additionally, Abrams has never concededto Kemp and has claimed the 2018 election was “stolen from Georgians.”

Abrams words were to suggest that Georgia’s heartbeat law shouldn’t be referred to as the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Her reasoning? Because “that’s medically false, biologically a lie.”

When The View co-host Alyssa Farah asked Abrams “Do you think there should be any legal limits on abortion, such as the third trimester or viability?” Abrams responded: “I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision…Arbitrary politically-defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.”

“Abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision … The limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality,” she added.

Kemp is up 6.6 percentage points in RCP polling average over Abrams.
