The people of Georgia have elected two Democrats to represent their state in the U.S. Senate, Democrats whose victories have resulted in a 50-50 split, with the deciding vote by Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
Effectively, Democrats hold a majority in the Senate. Republicans are out of power in the White House and Congress.
Pro-life Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler were defeated on Tuesday. Abortion advocates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff are the new senators from Georgia.
Pro-lifers have criticized Warnock and Ossoff for their views on abortion. Warnock, who leads a congregation, calls himself a “pro-choice pastor.” BCN contributor and radio show host Carl Jackson wrote about his support for “reproductive justice.” A group of black pastors condemned Warnock’s views on abortion in an open letter.
“You have publicly expressed your views that abortion is an exercise of ‘human agency and freedom’ that is fully consistent with your role as a shepherd of God’s people…As a Christian pastor and as a Black leader, you have a duty to denounce the evil of abortion, which kills a disproportionate number of Black children. Your open advocacy of abortion is a scandal to the faith and to the Black community.”
Pro-lifer Ryan Bomberger wrote:
Warnock proclaimed in one of his sermons that one “cannot serve God and the military,” yet has no problem serving—and I use that term very loosely—God and Planned Parenthood.
What a stark contrast. In the military, you’re willing to give up your life to defend and benefit someone else. At Planned Parenthood, you’re conned into giving up someone else’s life to defend and benefit Big Abortion’s profit. A Tesla-driving Pastor who makes over $330k per year knows a little bit about exploiting for profit.
Many conservatives suspected voting fraud in the presidential election and were concerned similar issues would emerge during the Georgia runoff elections.
