As early voting begins in the runof for the Georgia Senate seat, a new poll shows pro-life candidate herschel Walker with a very narrow lead over pro-abortion Senator Raphael Warnock.

A new Phillips Academy poll found Walker leading Warnock by one point, or 48 percent to the Democrat’s 47 percent. The narrow lead is well within the survey’s +/- 3.3 margin of error.

With 5% of Georgia voters saying they are undedcided, the race could truly swing in either direction. The survey was conducted November 26-27, 2022, among 862 likely Georgia voters.

The poll is a reminder for pro-life voters to get out and vote for Walker because polling data showed him with a slight lead heading into the November election, but Warnock ended up leading by just under 1% — but without the 50% needed to avoid a runoff.

For pro-life vorters, the chocie is clear. Warnock was a lead co-sponsor of the deceptively named “Women’s Health Protection Act,” legislation that would mandate abortion on demand until birth in all 50 states. Walker backs a federal minimum limit on abortion after 15 weeks, a point when unborn children can feel pain, and repeatedly called out Warnock’s pro-abortion extremism on the debate stage.

SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser says,“Walker’s support for compassionate limits on abortion aligns with the people of Georgia and the overwhelming majority of Americans, in stark contrast to ‘activist pastor’ Warnock’s radical position of abortion on demand until birth, paid for by taxpayers. Our ground team will continue to visit voters at their homes to expose Warnock’s extremism and urge them to elect Walker as their champion in the U.S. Senate.”

Warnock closed the race to keep his U.S. Senate seat with an ad that supports killing disabled unborn babies in eugenic, discriminatory abortions.

The ad also attempts to portray his opponent, pro-life Republican candidate Herschel Walker, in a poor light, describing him as “cruel” for wanting to protect unborn babies from abortions.

Warnock, who touts himself as a “pro-choice pastor,” has a 100-percent pro-abortion voting record, according to NRLC.

In his new ad, a woman named Sarah Watkins explains why she chose to abort her unborn daughter after the girl was diagnosed with a fatal disorder called Edwards syndrome. Watkins says her doctors predicted that her daughter would die in the womb or a few days after birth.

Watkins claims pro-lifers do not understand the “absolute devastation and horror of getting that phone call from a doctor telling you that child wasn’t going to live.” Then she bashes Walker as “cruel” for supporting laws that protect unborn babies from abortion.

“The only way we could help [our daughter] is to make sure she went back to God in peace and in love, and that’s the only decision we could make for her,” Watkins says of her abortion.

But abortions are not the only or best choice in these situations. Healthy or not, babies in the womb are valuable human beings who deserve to be protected from violence. Abortions destroy their lives, and, by the time most unborn babies are diagnosed with a medical disorder, they already are nearly fully formed.

In contrast, Walker is “a proud pro-life Christian” who has promised to “always stand up for our unborn children.” The Republican candidate has said he believes children conceived in horrible circumstances still have worth and potential.

“You never know what a child is going to become,” Walker said. “And I’ve seen some people, they’ve had some tough times, but I always said, ‘No matter what, tough times make tough people.’”
