Raphael Warnock (D), Incumbent
Warnock, who was elected to the Senate in 2021, has demonstrated an uncompromising belief in the right to safe, affordable reproductive health care — including abortion — time after time.
I’ll never back down from this fight because women should be able to make their own health care decisions.Raphael Warnock, 6/24/2022
Rev. Warnock has been a vocal supporter of abortion rights for years — and worked as a sexual health educator before joining the clergy. Dr. Ginger Davis Floyd, a former state public health official, has said:“From first-hand experience, I know he is a tremendous advocate for women's health, contraceptive access, and the pro-choice movement.”
In the Senate, Warnock co-sponsored the Women’s Health Protection Act, a federal law that would protect the right to abortion.
Warnock is the senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta — the church once led by Martin Luther King, Jr. Warnock says, “I am a pro-choice pastor,” and calls access to abortion “a critical part of inclusive health care.”
Herschel Walker (R), Challenger
Walker favors a national abortion ban — without exceptions.
There’s no exception in my mind. Like I say, I believe in life. I believe in life.Herschel Walker, 5/18/2022
Responding to a survey by an anti-abortion group, Walker wrote that he would vote for any anti-abortion legislation (*.pdf), “even if the legislation is not perfect.” Walker supports no exceptions, including in cases of rape or incest or to protect the life of the pregnant person.
Walker supports mandatory ultrasounds (*.pdf) — a medically unnecessary and sometimes invasive procedure — for abortion patients..
Endorsed by major national anti-abortion groups that promote restrictions on access to abortion and birth control, Walker has accepted money to speak on behalf of “crisis pregnancy centers” — facilities that often have no on-staff medical providers and exist solely to promote misinformation and propaganda to deter patients from accessing abortion.
