2020 SENATE SPECIAL ELECTION

RAPHAEL WARNOCK (D)

Rev. Raphael Warnock is a champion for reproductive health and rights who will fight passionately for equitable access to health care.

I have been an advocate for reproductive justice my entire life. As a U.S. Senator, I promise to fight for and protect access to reproductive health care.

  • Rev. Warnock is the senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, the church once led by Martin Luther King, Jr. Before joining the clergy, Rev. Warnock worked as a sexual health educator in his community.

  • Throughout his career, Rev. Warnock has been a passionate advocate for reproductive rights. He has called for greater access to birth control and safe, legal abortion — and will fight abortion bans and restrictions in the U.S. Senate.

  • Rev. Warnock has repeatedly stood up on behalf of Georgians who face systemic barriers and discrimination in health care, and in other areas of their lives. In 2014, he led a sit-in at the Georgia Capitol to advocate for Medicaid expansion. 

KELLY LOEFFLER (R), Incumbent

The spouse of the chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, and a staunch opponent of abortion access, Sen. Loeffler has become notorious for profiting off the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a woman of devout faith and a pro-life conservative, I will always seek ways to advance and promote pro-life policies in the U.S. Senate.

  • The National Right to Life Committee has called Sen. Loeffler one of the “most vocal” abortion opponents in Washington.

  • Since being appointed to the Senate in January, Sen. Loeffler has sponsored and co-sponsored multiple bills restricting and banning abortion. She also urged Trump to retain the harmful ban on federally supported fetal tissue research — even though this research could help find treatments and cures for COVID-19.

  • In early 2020, Sen. Loeffler sold millions of dollars worth of stocks after receiving information at private senatorial briefings about the developing coronavirus pandemic. Soon afterward, millions of Americans lost their jobs and health insurance.

  • As a co-owner of the Atlanta Dream women's basketball team, Sen. Loeffler used her position to try to stop the WNBA from giving players warm-up jerseys emblazoned with the phrases "Black Lives Matter" and "Say Her Name." A former Dream team member said Sen. Loeffler is “[h]appy to own us as long as we stay quiet and perform.”

DOUG COLLINS (R)

Rep. Doug Collins has spread disinformation about Planned Parenthood and abortion, and promises to take his dangerous anti-abortion agenda to the U.S. Senate.

I want to continue to see abortion go away.

  • As a member of the Georgia House of Representatives, Collins sponsored the state’s 20-week abortion ban and voted for a bill designed to shame people seeking abortion that would have forced patients to undergo a medically unecessary ultrasound or listen to fetal pole activity.

  • On his first full day in the U.S. House, Collins cosponsored legislation to restrict Title X funding to Planned Parenthood health centers and other abortion providers — and he has continued to attack patients’ access to care at Planned Parenthood. 

  • Collins supported Trump's Muslim ban, which blocks people from several majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States.
