Former NFL coach Tony Dungy questioned how a Christian pastor can support the killing of unborn babies in abortions the way that U.S. Senate candidate Raphael Warnock does.
Warnock is challenging pro-life U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler in a high-stakes runoff election in Georgia. He recently described himself as a “pro-choice” pastor and claimed his support for abortion is “consistent” with biblical values. Endorsed by Planned Parenthood, Warnock supports abortions without limits and wants to force taxpayers to pay for them.
One News Now reports Dungy told Warnock that he does not understand how a Christian can justify supporting killing an unborn baby whom God has created.
“I would think it would be difficult for someone who believes that God sees us when we are in the womb (Psalm 139:13-16) to think that it is OK to choose not to bring that life to fruition,” he wrote on Twitter.

“[Warnock] may be a pastor, but my question would be, ‘Is he a Christian?’ That is, does he follow the teachings of Jesus, and does he believe that the Bible is the absolute Word of God?” Dungy continued.
“What if I was advocating for the right to kill someone who was already born? Would that be morally OK? Of course not. The only question in this debate is what we think of the unborn baby? Is it a life or is it not?” the former coach added.
Dungy urged abortion supporters to “read Psalm 139:13-16, then tell me if you think God puts babies in the womb or man does? If you believe they randomly get there, then I have no argument, but if you believe God puts them there, then how does anyone have a right to ‘choose’ which ones survive?”
He also said abortion is not morally correct just because many people support it. Dungy mentioned how some Christian leaders also supported the evil of slavery in the 19th century.
“That doesn’t make it right,” he wrote online.
Dungy is the former head coach of the Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He is vocal about his Christian and pro-life beliefs.
