Radical pro-abortion “pastor” Raphael Warnock has defeated pro-life Senator Kelly Loeffler in one of the two Georgia Senate races up for grabs tonight in special runoff elections. With 98% of votes tabulated, Warnock received 2,127,890 votes to 2,108,249 for Loeffer.
Pro-life Republican U.S. Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler face challengers Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, both pro-abortion Democrats. If Perdue and Loeffler lose, the Senate would have a 50-50 party split, and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, a pro-abortion Democrat, would cast the deciding vote on issues like forcing taxpayers to fund abortions and expanding late-term abortions.
In the Perdue-Ossoff race, Senator Perdue currently leads by 3,000 votes but the remainder of the votes are expected to come from Democrat counties and some election observers predict his narrow lead will not hold.
Warnock claims to be a Christian pastor but, last November, he said he would “always fight” to keep the killing of unborn babies in abortions legal in America. Warnock, the senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, supports abortion on demand and had the endorsement of the largest abortion group in America, Planned Parenthood.
He wrote, “I will always fight for reproductive justice,” a term that includes abortion on demand.
A day later, he added, “I’m a pro-choice pastor, and I believe that a hospital room is way too small for a woman, her doctor, and the United States government.”
As a senator, Warnock, who allegedly ran over his wife with his car, would help Democrat leaders force taxpayers to fund elective abortions, pack the Supreme Court with pro-abortion activist judges and force states to allow viable unborn babies to be killed in late-term abortions.
In an August interview, Warnock told podcast host Tim Bryan that the decision to abort an unborn baby should be up to a woman “and her doctor and her minister.” He said he believes abortions are part of the “human agency and freedom” that God gives people.
Pro-life advocates and Christian leaders have expressed outrage at Warnock’s attempts to justify killing unborn babies as a matter of faith and justice.
“Murdering a child is the antithesis of justice,” Live Action founder Lila Rose wrote in response. “How dare you claim the name of Christ while you advocate for the ‘right’ to slaughter His children, made in His image. Your words are Satanic.”
Christian singer Danny Gokey and former NFL player Ben Watson also slammed Warnock for misleading people about the value of human life.
“Killing boys & girls in the womb is not a brave or heroic act like the left loves to portray,” Gokey wrote. “Everyone of us needed someone to fend & fight for us when we couldn’t defend ourselves. Most confusingly-abortion has murdered millions of woman & blacks-The ones they say they fight for.”
Watson added: “Pastor, Equal access to kill a son or daughter is NOT justice. JUSTICE is the equitable distribution of punishment AND protection. JUSTICE is rooted in the dignity of every human endowed by their Creator. One cannot truly fight for JUSTICE while simultaneously denying it.”
Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life Action, says Democrats also could pack the U.S. Supreme Court with pro-abortion activist judges if Warnock and Ossoff are elected.
The candidates’ positions on abortion could not be more starkly different.
Loeffler and Perdue both have 100-percent pro-life voting records, including supporting the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks on unborn babies capable of feeling pain, and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which would protect newborns from infanticide.
The Republican candidates have the support of many pro-life and conservative organizations including Susan B. Anthony List, Heritage Foundation, National Right to Life and Students for Life.
In contrast, their Democrat opponents support abortions without limits and want to force taxpayers to pay for them – positions that are vastly out of touch with most Americans. Warnock is a pro-abortion Democrat who describes himself as a “pro-choice” pastor and claims his support for abortion is “consistent” with biblical values. Both he and Ossoff have the support of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion group in the U.S.
During the election, pro-life groups including AFA Action and Susan B. Anthony List were on the ground in Georgia educating voters about the candidates.
Prudence Robertson of the SBA List said one of the issues at stake is the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding for elective abortions in Medicaid and other federal programs.
“The Hyde Amendment has saved over 2.4 million lives, and many of those lives are children being born in black and other minority populations,” she told the news outlet.
Robertson said the two Georgia races are critical to U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plan to force taxpayers to pay for the killing of unborn babies in abortions.
“This claim that Pelosi’s making, that she would repeal the Hyde Amendment, it just makes the election just that much more critical,” she said. “If Democrats were able to gain control of the Senate, they would strip away all pro-life protections that are currently afforded to the unborn, including the Hyde Amendment.”
