Leftist Hollywood celebrities have their focus fixed on Georgia this winter as the state once again is a key player for the future of unborn babies’ lives in America.
In January, Georgia voters will decide whether Republicans will maintain a majority in the U.S. Senate in a high-stakes run-off election. The Republican-majority Senate has been a vital stop-gap against radical pro-abortion legislation from the Democrat-controlled U.S. House.
However, that could change if celebrities like Alyssa Milano, Amy Schumer, Alec Baldwin, Debra Messing, Patton Oswalt and Sophia Bush have their way.
Breitbart reports these pro-abortion celebrities are lobbying Georgia voters to support pro-abortion Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. If both win, Democrats could succeed in expanding late-term abortions and ending limits on taxpayer-funded abortions.
Meanwhile, U.S. Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, both pro-life Republicans, are receiving support from pro-life organizations and conservative political groups.
“Georgians vote Rev. Warnock and Ossoff to save America,” Milano wrote last week on Twitter, urging residents to register to vote.
Bush (“One Tree Hill”) also has been active in the state through Win Both Seats, a political group trying to convince minority voters to support the pro-abortion Democrat candidates, according to the report. The actress recently wrote that she is “proud to be … working in Georgia to win both seats.”
On Twitter, Oswalt, a comedian and popular voice actor, practically begged Georgians to vote Democrat in January, writing on Twitter, “Please please PLEASE Georgia vote for Ossoff. Thank you.”
Schumer and Baldwin also have been urging Georgians on social media to vote blue. Meanwhile, Messing (“Will and Grace”) claimed the pro-abortion Democrat challengers would best serve the people of Georgia.
“Georgia you have the power to hire Senators who are ON YOUR SIDE,” she wrote recently on social media.
But Ossoff and Warnock are really on the side of the billion-dollar abortion industry and not Georgians, especially its most vulnerable residents: unborn babies. Both Democrats have promised to advance a radical pro-abortion agenda that is vastly out of touch with most Americans.
Polls consistently show that most Americans oppose the Democratic Party’s abortion platform, which includes forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions in Medicaid and supporting abortions without limits. A July Gallup poll found 55% of Americans take a pro-life position on abortion wanting all (21%) or almost all (39%) abortions made illegal.
A 2019 poll by Marist University found an overwhelming majority of Americans support restrictions on abortion, including a majority of Democrat voters. It also found that 75 percent of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion abroad, while fewer than two in 10 (19 percent) support such funding. Similarly, a Harvard University poll found that only 36 percent of likely voters support overturning the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding for elective abortions in Medicaid.
Perdue and Loeffler have a strong record of supporting all Georgians, born and unborn. They both have a 100-percent pro-life voting record. Their actions include supporting 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.
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.
