WaPo 'Fact' Checker Glenn Kessler and Stacey Abrams Claim Fetal Heartbeat Is a 'Misnomer,' They Quickly Get Owned by the Truth

Paula Bolyard-Opinion : Sep 23, 2022  PJ Media

"An unborn baby's heart starts beating 22 days after conception. Here's proof..." -LifeNews tweet

[PJMedia.com] Glenn Kessler, the Washington Post's intrepid "fact" checker, must have been salivating over his plan to "own the cons" when he retweeted Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams' claim that "there's no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks." Abrams (D-Tinfoil Hat) claimed that a fetal heartbeat is just a Grand Plot by men to "take control of a woman's body." (Screengrab image)

Kessler weighed in with, "FWIW, 'fetal heartbeat' is a misnomer. The ultrasound picks up electrical activity generated by an embryo."

"The so-called 'heartbeat' sound you hear is created by the ultrasound," he added. "Not until 10 weeks can the opening and closing of cardiac valves be detected by a Doppler machine"...

...Radiologist Pradheep J. Shanker quickly pointed out that Kessler has no idea what he is talking about: Glenn... "This is scientifically and medically incorrect. 100%. Ultrasound can't detect electrical activity. Who told you otherwise?"

He said the NPR article Kessler cited was wrong. "Ultrasound only detects density and motion. It cannot detect any electrical activity at all. This is a scientific fact," Shanker declared. "It is true that the valves in the heart develop later. However, the cardiac muscles that are located in the embryological heart are contracting. They are in fact moving inward and outward. That is how you define a beat."

He conceded that a fetal heartbeat isn't the same as a fully developed adult heartbeat but added, "the cardiac tissue is contracting, which is literally what a beat is. To say otherwise is scientific misinformation, and cannot be treated otherwise." What!?!?!?! Misinformation from the world's leading "fact" checker? How can this be?...
