GEORGIA — After abortion rights altered the course of the 2022 midterm elections, Georgia voters proved once again that reproductive freedom is a winning issue. By re-electing Sen. Rev. Raphael Warnock, who made the contrast between himself and Herschel Walker on abortion rights a cornerstone of his campaign, Georgians sent a resounding message that they want  leaders who will trust them to make their own personal medical decisions and determine their own futures. Sen. Warnock’s victory is another critical win for the future of abortion rights, and Planned Parenthood Votes made a historic investment to help make it happen. 

Statement from Amy Kennedy, spokesperson for Planned Parenthood Votes in Georgia:

“Reproductive freedom has prevailed once again. Georgia voters knew exactly what was at stake in this runoff, and they showed up in force to re-elect Sen. Rev. Raphael Warnock, further proving the political salience of abortion rights. Dedicated organizers and volunteers on the ground have worked around the clock to ensure that voters knew when, where, and how to vote — again — and that Rev. Warnock was the only candidate who would fight for their rights in the U.S. Senate. This victory is a testament to their commitment and to Georgians’ dedication to restoring their freedom and fighting for a better future.”

Fueled by dedicated volunteers, supporters, organizers, and staff, Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations: 

  • knocked on over 80,000 doors;
  • made over 100,000 phone calls;
  • and recruited over 170 volunteers in four weeks.

In addition, Planned Parenthood Votes’ digital video ad, ‘Can’t be trusted’, reached 326,712 voters and has been viewed over 2.5 million times.
