There are two run-off races in Georgia, which will take place January 5, featuring pro-life incumbent Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue matched up against pro-abortion Democrats the Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, respectively.
Were the Democrats to win both contests, there would be 50 Republican Senators and 50 Democrat Senators. This leaves the deciding vote to the president of the Senate—the Vice President.
So what takes place in less than three weeks will decide if pro-abortion Joe Biden has, in addition to a Democrat majority in the House, functional control of the Senate.
It’s not surprising that the contest between Sen. Loeffler and the Rev. Warnock has garnered the overwhelming percentage of media attention. Sen. Loeffler was appointed to fill out the remaining term of Sen. Johnny Isakson who retired because of his health. If she wins the runoff, she would be the first woman elected to the Senate from Georgia.
The Rev. Warnock is an African-American who is out front about his support for “reproductive justice. “
As Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life, said, “Raphael Warnock is endorsed by Planned Parenthood, the biggest abortion chain in the country, responsible for the deaths of more than 345,000 unborn babies every year.” She added, “Warnock made it clear in the last debate that he would oppose any effort to protect unborn babies at any stage of pregnancy, and he believes Georgians should pay for abortion with their tax dollars.”
Jordan Davidson posted an excellent story today in The Federalist. The headline gives us the thesis straightforwardly: “Raphael Warnock’s Pastoral And Political Legacy Is Marked By Zealous Abortion Advocacy.”
Here are some quotes Davidson cites (including from Rev. Warnock’s campaign website) to back up his assertion that “Georgia Democratic Senate candidate and progressive Rev. Raphael Warnock is one of the most pro-abortion candidates in Georgia’s history.”

*“Warnock believes in a woman’s right to choose and that it is a decision between her and her doctor — not the government.”
* “According to the same campaign website, Warnock first began to advocate for ‘reproductive justice’ in college, working with the Georgia Department of Health during his college years, but has ‘been an advocate for women’s health and reproductive justice his entire life.’”
*On Planned Parenthood’s website, we read, “Rev. Raphael Warnock is a champion for reproductive health and rights who will fight passionately for equitable access to health care.”
* “In 2014, Warnock, along with six other political activists, wrote an open letter to then-Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal criticizing his decision to sign a Senate bill banning Obamacare coverage for abortion and causing ‘unfair, unjust and harmful consequences for regular everyday Georgians.’
*”We will see a Governor who allowed and supported attacks on the rights of women by further limit[ing] access to reproductive choice the letter stated. Warnock was the only signee who used his pastoral title.”
*Then there’s this from the campaign: “Reverend Warnock believes a patient’s room is too small a place for a woman, her doctor, and the U.S. government and that these are deeply personal health care decisions — not political ones.”
There’s much more that makes clear that the Rev. Warnock didn’t just discover his passion for abortion: it goes back decades.
If elected, he would, indeed, be “one of the most pro-abortion candidates in Georgia’s history.”
