Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff defeated incumbent Republican Georgia Sen. David Perdue in Tuesday’s runoff election. The victory for the pro-abortion Democrat over the pro-life senator essentially puts the Senate in Democrat hands by giving pro-abortion radical Kamala Harris the tie-breaking vote if she becomes Vice President.
The Associated Press called the race with 98% of the vote in. Ossoff received 2,222,133 million votes, 50.3% of the total, while Perdue received 2,197,274 million votes, 49.7%, according to the New York Times. The Senate will now be divided 50-50 with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris serving as the tie-breaker for the Democrats.
Last night, pro-abortion Raphael Warnock defeated pro-life Sen. Kelly Loeffler.
With both senators losing their races, the Senate will have a 50-50 party split, and, if she’s Vice-President, Kamala Harris, a pro-abortion Democrat, would cast the deciding vote on issues like forcing taxpayers to fund abortions and expanding late-term abortions.
Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life Action, says Democrats also could pack the U.S. Supreme Court with pro-abortion activist judges if Warnock and Ossoff are elected.
The candidates’ positions on abortion could not be more starkly different.

Loeffler and Perdue both have 100-percent pro-life voting records, including 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.
The Republican candidates have the support of many pro-life and conservative organizations including Susan B. Anthony List, Heritage Foundation, National Right to Life and Students for Life.
In contrast, their Democrat opponents support abortions without limits and want to force taxpayers to pay for them – positions that are vastly out of touch with most Americans. Warnock is a pro-abortion Democrat who describes himself as a “pro-choice” pastor and claims his support for abortion is “consistent” with biblical values. Both he and Ossoff have the support of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion group in the U.S.
During the election, pro-life groups including AFA Action and Susan B. Anthony List were on the ground in Georgia educating voters about the candidates.
Prudence Robertson of the SBA List said one of the issues at stake is the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding for elective abortions in Medicaid and other federal programs.
“The Hyde Amendment has saved over 2.4 million lives, and many of those lives are children being born in black and other minority populations,” she told the news outlet.
Robertson said the two Georgia races are critical to U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plan to force taxpayers to pay for the killing of unborn babies in abortions.
“This claim that Pelosi’s making, that she would repeal the Hyde Amendment, it just makes the election just that much more critical,” she said. “If Democrats were able to gain control of the Senate, they would strip away all pro-life protections that are currently afforded to the unborn, including the Hyde Amendment.”
