The way that U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler of Georgia spends her money tells voters a lot about her character and priorities.
Over the past year, Loeffler, a pro-life Republican, has donated her entire salary to charities, including to pro-life pregnancy centers that serve women and babies, adoption and foster care agencies and homeless shelters across the state, Breitbart reports.
For the fourth quarter, she chose 10 charities to divide her $38,000 Senate earnings between, according to the report. These included Covenant Care Adoptions of Macon, Dream Weavers Foster Care of Alpharetta, and Obria Medical Clinic of Lawrenceville, Georgia.
Obria is a pro-life center that provides pregnancy and parenting services as well as well-women exams, prenatal care, cancer screenings, STD testing and more. The founders of Obria created it to be a pro-life alternative to the abortion chain Planned Parenthood.
Earlier this year, Loeffler also donated another portion of her quarterly earnings to the pro-life organization Athens Pregnancy Center, which provides free education and support mothers and babies, according to the report.

“Charitable organizations and nonprofits embody the best of Georgia and the best of America, and they play a critical role in fostering thriving communities across our state,” Loeffler said in a statement. “This quarter, I’m proud to donate my salary to 10 Georgia-based organizations that are on the frontlines lifting Georgians up and providing life-changing resources and support to so many.”
Loeffler is facing a high-stakes runoff election against pro-abortion Democrat Raphael Warnock in January. Because Republicans hold such a narrow majority in the U.S. Senate, her seat is key to stopping Democrats from expanding late-term abortions and forcing taxpayers to pay for unborn babies’ abortion deaths.
Though Warnock is a Christian pastor, he supports abortion on demand and has the endorsement of the largest abortion group in America, Planned Parenthood.
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.
