In a new interview, pro-abortion Democrat Raphael Warnock claims that killing babies in abortions is somehow a Christian concept even though it clearly results in the destruction of babies created in God’s image.
In an interview with MSNBC host Joy Reid on ‘The Reidout’ on Monday, Warnock, who has voted for abortions up to birth, tried to justify killing babies by saying that it’s okay from his standpoint because he is a pastor.
“I get a lot of pushback from people who seem to think that they own the interpretation of the Gospel,” Warnock said. “I have been studying the Scriptures my whole life. I’m committed to the faith. And, as a pastor, I have a profound reverence for life. And, as a pastor and a person of faith, I have a deep respect for choice.”
“If we care about life, black women are dying three to four times the rate of white women in childbirth, as a result of childbirth,” he said. “And so, if you care about life, we ought to find a way and address the obvious bias in our health care system.”
“It’s what Jesus would do,” Reid said.
“I think it’s exactly what Jesus would do,” Warnock agreed.
Abortion is literally the oppose of what Jesus would do as over a dozen Bible verses prohibit murder and encourage a pro-life position. In fact Jesus told people to obey the Ten Commandments, saying that anyone like Warnock who teaches against them will face eternal consequences.

A man asked Jesus, “What shall I do to inherit eternal life?” (Luke 18:18). Jesus answered that the basic starting point was keeping the Commandments, and then He listed five of them: “‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ Do not bear false witness,’ ‘Honor your father and your mother’” (Luke 18:20).
“Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:19).
Here is the full transcript of Warnock’s remarks:
REID: And another issue that it really drove a lot of people to the polls was the issue of abortion and women’s right to have self-determination self-determination over our own bodies.
This is a state that’s got one of the strictest abortion bills — laws in the country. It’s one of the hardest states in the United States for a woman to exercise her rights. And this is also a state that’s got Tyler Perry and lots of industry and lots of folks coming from out of state to work here in the industry.
Your opponent, Herschel Walker, was one of the few people that was running in this cycle to stand up and support Lindsey Graham’s idea of a national ban on abortion, which is something Republicans would very much like to do.
Do you — do you think that that is going to be a fight that you’re going to have to have? Are we looking at trying to fight a national abortion ban?
WARNOCK: Well, I think that’s one of the things that’s on the ballot tomorrow.
And it is — Herschel Walker’s position on this is extreme. He says he wants a national ban, no exceptions. That would include rape, incest, the life of the mother. I think that’s out of step with the women of Georgia, Democrats and Republicans.
(CHEERING AND APPLAUSE)
WARNOCK: And it’s one of the — it’s one of the things that’s on the ballot.
And I get a lot of pushback from people who seem to think that they own the interpretation of the Gospel. But I have been studying the Scriptures my whole life. I’m committed to the faith. And, as a pastor, I have a profound reverence for life. And, as a pastor and a person of faith, I have a deep respect for choice.
And I still think, as I have said time and time again, that a patient’s room is too small and cramped a space for a woman, her doctor and the United States government. But if we care about life, black women are dying three to four times the rate of white women in childbirth, as a result of childbirth.
And so, if you care about life, we ought to find a way. That’s a place where government could show up…
WARNOCK: … and address the obvious bias in our health care system.
REID: It’s what Jesus would do.
WARNOCK: It — I think it’s exactly what Jesus would do.
