Sen. Kelly Loeffler slammed her Democrat opponent Monday for using the Bible to try to justify the killing of unborn babies in abortions.

Loeffler, a freshman senator from Georgia, is facing a run-off election against pro-abortion Democrat Raphael Warnock in January. Neither Loeffler nor Warnock, a pastor, received more than 50 percent of votes Nov. 3, pushing the race into a runoff election.

Because Republicans hold such a narrow majority in the U.S. Senate, Loeffler’s seat is key to stopping Democrats from expanding late-term abortions and forcing taxpayers to pay for unborn babies’ abortion deaths.

On Monday, she pointed out just how extreme Warnock’s beliefs about abortion are.

“@ReverendWarnock opposes ANY abortion restrictions,” Loeffler wrote on Twitter. “He’s used the Bible & the pulpit to justify his support for abortion on demand.”

She shared a clip from an August interview in which Warnock refused to mourn the 62 million unborn babies who have been killed in abortions since Roe v. Wade.

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.

“[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 goals 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.

In contrast, Loeffler promised to defend unborn babies’ right to life in the Senate.

“Unlike my opponent, I am 100% pro-life. I will ALWAYS defend the most vulnerable among us,” Loeffler wrote Monday.

Loeffler has a 100-percent pro-life voting record. She also co-sponsored 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 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.

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 U.S. Sen. David Perdue, a pro-life Republican who also is facing a runoff election against pro-abortion Democrat Jon Ossoff.

A recent Remington Research Group poll shows Perdue and Loeffler are ahead but only by small margins, Newsweek reports. 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.

Ossoff and Warnock support abortion on demand, and they have the backing of the billion-dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood.
