Senate Control Depends on Two Georgia Runoffs, Pro-Life Groups Will Fight Hard to Win Them

In the ever-changing election chaos, the Republican majority in the U.S. Senate is now in jeopardy.

If pro-abortion Democrat Joe Biden wins the presidency and Democrats take control of the Senate, there would be nothing to stop them from passing radical pro-abortion laws that allow unborn babies to be aborted for any reason up to birth and force taxpayers to fund their deaths. Democrat leaders also could pack the U.S. Supreme Court with activist judges who would keep abortion on demand legal for decades.

Initial election results indicated that Republicans would maintain their narrow majority in the Senate, but the AP reports the situation has changed.

“One race in Georgia is headed to a January runoff. A second contest in Georgia and races in North Carolina and Alaska remain undecided, leaving the chamber now deadlocked 48-48. An outcome may not be known until the new year,” according to the report.

Georgia U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler’s race against pro-abortion Democrat Raphael Warnock is headed into a runoff in January because neither candidate received more than 50 percent of votes. New results suggest fellow U.S. Sen. David Perdue of Georgia also may face a runoff against pro-abortion Democrat Jon Ossoff.

Republicans currently hold a 53-47 majority in the Senate, and Women Speak Out is working hard to support pro-life lawmakers.

“We are going all in for pro-life champions Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue,” said Mallory Quigley, national spokeswoman for the pro-life PAC. “The outcomes of these races will determine the fate of the U.S. Senate and our nation.”

Quigley said they plan to spend $4 million to educate voters about Loeffler and Perdue and the risks of losing the Senate to radical pro-abortion Democrats.

“Without a pro-life Republican majority in the Senate, there would be no check on the pro-abortion Biden-Harris administration, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and the radical pro-abortion lobby bent on ditching the filibuster and packing the [Supreme] Court,” she said.

Perdue and Loeffler both have a 100-percent pro-life rating from the National Right to Life Committee. Perdue, who has served since 2015, voted in favor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Act. Loeffler, who took office earlier this year, also co-sponsored and voted for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.

Their Democrat opponents, Ossoff and Warnock, are pro-abortion, and they have the support of the billion-dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood.

In other Senate races, Democrats flipped two Republican seats in Arizona and Colorado, while Republicans gained a Democrat seat in Alabama. In the U.S. House, Democrats still hold a majority, but Republicans managed to narrow it by electing a record number of pro-life women to office this week.
