The city of Chicago saw the most shooting victims of 2020 in one weekend over the Father’s Day holiday weekend with 102 people shot, 14 of them fatally, The Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Many of the victims were young, including a three-year-old boy, a 13-year-old girl, a 16-year-old boy, and a 17-year old boy who were all shot and killed over the weekend.

In response to the record violence, Chicago Police Department Superintendent David Brown stressed the need for a better strategy to keep violent offenders off the streets and in jail and to better monitor the violence.

“Bullets also tear apart families. Bullets destroy neighborhoods and ruin any sense of safety in a neighborhood,” Brown said.

Brown added, “No one should be able to walk away from killing a 3-year-old and a 13-year-old without consequences.”

The weekend’s numbers follow the City’s most violent weekend in decades when 82 people were shot, 19 of them fatally.

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.
