Chair of the New York City Council health committee Mark Levine tweeted Wednesday that ‘racism’ would be to blame for a potential spike in cases of the novel coronavirus in the weeks following massive protests and riots in reaction to the tragic death of George Floyd.
“Let’s be clear about something: if there’s a spike in coronavirus cases in the next two weeks, don’t blame the protestors. Blame racism,” he wrote.
And let's remember that the police are increasing covid risk by:
* using tear gas
* herding demonstrators into tight spaces
* putting people in crowded jails

Levine continued, “And let’s remember that the police are increasing covid risk by: using tear gas, herding demonstrators into tight spaces, putting people in crowded jails.”
The streets of New York have seen thousands of people in recent days, not keeping distance, and, some, not wearing masks. This comes after months of lockdown as city officials worked to mitigate the spread of the virus in the country’s epicenter. The city estimates that nearly 200,000 people have been diagnosed with the coronavirus and that nearly 20,000 have died.

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.
