Pro-Lifers Must Win a Georgia Senate Race to Stop Democrats From Controlling the Senate

Pro-abortion Democrat leaders are not being shy about their plans to expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions and force taxpayers to fund their deaths.

They control the U.S. House and potentially soon the White House, should Joe Biden be confirmed the winner. The only thing stopping them is the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate, and even that is at stake.

All eyes are on Georgia where both of its pro-life Republican senators are facing run-off elections in January.

The Georgia races between U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler and pro-abortion Democrat Raphael Warnock and U.S. Sen. David Perdue and pro-abortion Democrat Jon Ossoff will determine which party holds power of the Senate in 2021. While both Loeffler and Perdue received more votes than their Democrat challengers Nov. 3, they did not meet the 50-percent threshold required to win. That put both their races into a January run-off election.

“Regardless of who is officially declared President-Elect, we know that the future of the Senate will come down to Georgia’s runoff elections, and I cannot understate how important it will be to maintain a pro-life Senate majority,” said Tom McClusky, president of March for Life Action.

March for Life Action, Susan B. Anthony List, National Right to Life and other leading pro-life groups are working hard to support Loeffler and Perdue, both of whom have 100-percent pro-life voting records.

Their races are key for the future of unborn babies in America. If they lose and Democrats regain control of the U.S. Senate, McClusky said even more unborn babies’ lives would be at stake.

“If we end up with a pro-abortion Democrat-controlled House, Senate and White House, we could expect to lose decades of pro-life protections at breakneck speeds,” McClusky said. “If we maintain the Republican majority in the Senate, however, we will work more effectively to block pro-abortion bills from passing and save pro-life bills from destruction.”

Newsweek reports a new Remington Research Group poll shows Perdue and Loeffler are ahead but only by small margins. According to the poll, voters chose Perdue over Ossoff by 50 percent to 46 percent; an additional 4 percent were undecided. The poll found Loeffler had a 1-percent lead over Warnock (49 percent to 48 percent); 3 percent of voters remain undecided.

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, support abortion on demand, and they have the backing of the billion-dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood. Warnock, a pastor, said he believes that his pro-abortion 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.”

If elected, Warnock and Ossoff could help Democrat leaders achieve their goal of forcing taxpayers to fund elective abortions, packing the U.S. Supreme Court with pro-abortion activist judges and forcing states to allow viable, pain-capable unborn babies to be killed in late-term abortions.

The pro-life Women Speak Out PAC plans to spend $4 million to support Perdue and Loeffler.

“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.”

March for Life Action also is educating voters through scorecards that compare the candidates’ positions on Roe v. Wade, taxpayer-funded abortions, protections for babies born alive in botched abortions and late-term abortions.
