The number of police officers shot in 2020 is expected to surpass last years ‘historic’ numbers, according to the National Fraternal Order of Police.

So far this year 106 officers have been shot and 23 killed. Twenty-seven of those shot were targeted in 22 different ambush attacks, according to the FOP.

“With 106 Officers Shot so far this year, on pace to surpass last year’s historic numbers,” the organization said Thursday. “Since Monday, the start of National #PoliceWeek, we’ve seen 6 officers shot, 4 of whom were gunned down by violent criminals.”

Moreover, the FOP says it has “more than 2,100 local lodges and more than 356,000 members in the United States. The Fraternal Order of Police has become the largest professional police organization in the country.”

The FOP tweeted earlier this month that “It’s time for EVERYONE to #SupportThePolice and say #EnoughIsEnough.”

According tot he Officer Down Memorial Page, 45 officers were killed by gunfire in 2020.

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.
