Black pro-life leader Alveda King slammed Georgia pastor Ralpahel Warnock for trying to justify his support for abortion with his Christian faith this week.

Warnock, a pro-abortion Democrat, is challenging pro-life U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler in a high-stakes runoff election in January. He describes himself as a “pro-choice” pastor and claims his pro-abortion views are “consistent” with biblical values.

“I wish Rev. Warnock would read the Bible for real,” King responded Wednesday, CNS News reports.

King, the director of civil rights for the unborn at Priests for Life, said the Democrat candidate has been “misus[ing] the Bible to defend indefensible positions” including abortion on demand.

“He cares nothing about our protection, our safety, our babies in the womb,” she told Fox News on Monday.

She accused Warnock of stirring up fear and division instead of seeking to unite and protect all Americans, born and unborn. King said her uncle Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and other leaders in her family taught her that God wants everyone to treat each other as brothers and sisters.

“We were taught out of the Bible that of one blood God made all people, so we are human beings and we are designed to be brothers and sisters,” she said.

King also accused Warnock of ignoring the progress that President Donald Trump and Republicans have made for African Americans, including criminal justice reform, reduced unemployment, better support for black colleges and universities, and protections for unborn babies.

Warnock’s statements, his allegiance to the Democratic Party and alliance with radical pro-abortion groups suggest he would work to expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions if elected to the U.S. Senate. A top goal on Democrat leaders’ agenda is to end the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to fund abortions, a move that almost certainly would lead to more unnecessary killings.

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, forcing taxpayers to pay for them and packing the U.S. Supreme Court with pro-abortion judges.

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 weekson 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.
