Georgia pro-life Sen. Kelly Loeffler is facing a runoff race against a pro-abortion Democrat who believes the Bible justifies the killing of unborn babies in abortions.
Neither Loeffler nor the Rev. Raphael Warnock, her Democrat opponent, received more than 50 percent of votes earlier this week, pushing the race into a runoff election in January. Loeffler’s seat is key to stopping radical pro-abortion legislation from passing in the future.
Loeffler is a Republican who sponsored two pro-life bills during her short time in the U.S. Senate: the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. She has a 100-percent pro-life rating from the National Right to Life Committee.

In contrast, Warnock supports abortion on demand and believes that his position is “consistent” with the Bible. In August, he 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 health care is a “human right,” and abortion is part of that.
“[A]nd for me, reproductive justice is consistent with my commitment to that,” Warnock said. “I believe unequivocally in a woman’s right to choose.”
If elected, Warnock could help Democrat leaders achieve their goal of forcing taxpayers to fund elective abortions, packing the Supreme Court with pro-abortion activist judges and forcing states to allow viable unborn babies to be killed in late-term abortions.
The narrow Republican majority in the U.S. Senate is now in jeopardy, in part, because of the Georgia runoff election.
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 majority in the Senate, but the AP reported Thursday that the situation has changed. Fellow Georgia Sen. David Perdue of Georgia also may face a runoff against pro-abortion Democrat Jon Ossoff in January, though votes still are being counted in the state.
Republicans currently hold a 53-47 majority in the Senate, and the pro-life PAC 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.
