The Chief Justice of South Carolina’s Supreme Court doesn’t understand basic human development, or he’s lying to make a political point. Chief Justice Donald Beatty claimed in a hearing an unborn baby at six weeks doesn’t have a heartbeat, adding, it’s merely “an electrical signal.” Peer-reviewed science says he’s wrong. Dr. Tara Sanders Lee, a past student of heart development at Harvard Medical School says at six weeks a preborn baby’s heart beats over one hundred times a minute. Lee stated, “A heartbeat at six weeks is scientific consensus based on published validated, objective biological investigation.” I say Chief Justice Beatty is ignorant of this basic fact or he’s repeating a pro-abortion talking point. Either way, he’s incapable of ruling on abortion-related cases.
