Senate candidate Raphael Warnock trashed pro-life Americans in a sermon to his congregation at Ebenezer Baptist Church in 2016, according to a video uncovered by The Federalist.
Warnock, a pro-abortion Democrat and pastor, is challenging pro-life U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler in a high-stakes runoff race in January in Georgia. As new information surfaces, it grows increasingly clear that his views on abortion are radical and out of touch with most Georgians.
Warnock’s views on pro-life Americans also appear to be less than charitable – especially for a pastor.
In a sermon dated Dec. 14, 2016 on YouTube, Warnock criticized “the religious right,” claiming they are only pro-life “before the baby is born,” according to The Federalist.

“Throughout the ’80s, ’90s, and early part of this century we have been frustrated with those on the religious right,” Warnock said. “Those who have been focused on one or two bedroom issues, and we have been asking them ‘Why is that you don’t have anything to say about poverty? How is it that you can say you are pro-life before the baby is born, but you won’t support child health care after the baby is here?’”
Ironically, Loeffler, whom he is challenging, has donated her entire Senate salary to charities, including foster care and adoption agencies, homeless shelters and pro-life pregnancy centers that help mothers and babies.
In contrast, Warnock opposes laws and policies that protect babies before they are born. Though he is a Christian pastor, he openly supports abortions without limits and wants to force taxpayers to pay for them. He recently described himself as a “pro-choice” pastor and claimed his support for abortion is “consistent” with biblical values.
If elected, Warnock could help Democrat Party leaders achieve their goal of forcing taxpayers to fund elective abortions, packing the U.S. Supreme Court with pro-abortion activist judges and forcing states to allow viable, pain-capable unborn babies to be killed in late-term abortions.
Because Republicans hold such a narrow majority in the U.S. Senate, Loeffler’s seat is key to stopping Democrat leaders from pushing 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.
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 percent of Americans take a pro-life position on abortion wanting all (21 percent) or almost all (39 percent) 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.
