Evangelical Christian leader Franklin Graham chastised U.S. Senate candidate Raphael Warnock on Monday for supporting the “most significant injustice of our time”: the massive killings of unborn babies in abortions.
Warnock, a pro-abortion Democrat, is trying to unseat pro-life U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler in a high-stakes Georgia runoff race in January. A pastor, he claims his pro-abortion views align with his Christian faith.
Pro-life and Christian leaders have been calling out Warnock’s contradictory claims. On Monday, Graham told the Democrat candidate that if he truly supports justice, he cannot support abortion.
“[Planned Parenthood] calls GA Democratic Senate Candidate @ReverendWarnock a champion for reproductive rights,” Graham wrote on Twitter. “Truthfully translated, that means Raphael Warnock champions the killing of babies in the safety of a mother’s womb through abortion.
“Candidate Warnock also said he supports ‘reproductive justice.’ Justice? What an ironic term to use. Abortion represents the most significant INJUSTICE of our time—genocide of entire masses of babies. This isn’t just a political issue, it’s a moral & a biblical issue,” he continued.

Graham, the founder of Samaritan’s Purse and son of the late Rev. Billy Graham, is a strong advocate for the rights of unborn babies. He urged Christians to reject Warnock’s anti-life agenda and pray for leaders who value human life.
“I hope the Church & all Georgians will see through this demonic-driven abortion agenda,” Graham wrote. “The GA runoff can have a huge impact on our Senate, which affects all of us. Please join me in praying that candidates who support life—not the murder of babies in the womb—will be elected.”
Warnock has the endorsement of Planned Parenthood, a billion-dollar abortion chain that aborted more than 345,000 unborn babies last year.
In an August interview, 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.
If elected, Warnock would help Democrat leaders force taxpayers to fund elective abortions, pack the U.S. Supreme Court with pro-abortion activist judges and force states to allow viable unborn babies to be killed in late-term abortions.
Because Republicans holdsuch a narrow majority in the U.S. Senate, Loeffler’s seat is key tostopping Democrats from achieving their radical pro-abortion agenda.
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.
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.
