Raphael Warnock is set to run against Georgia’s Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler in a closely-watched runoff election in January that will determine whether the upper chamber will remain in control of Loeffler’s party.
This week, Warnock, who is a senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, received the enthusiastic support of abortion giant Planned Parenthood and vowed to always fight for “reproductive justice” from the Senate should the people of Georgia send him there in January.
I will always fight for reproductive justice.
— Reverend Raphael Warnock (@ReverendWarnock) November 17, 2020
The Washington Examiner says that Warnock has described himself as “an advocate for reproductive justice my entire life”
“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,” Planned Parenthood Votes said of the Senate candidate.
There is nothing just about the “justice” this “Reverend” is vowing to defend.
Benjamin Watson, a former NFL football player and outspoken Christian and pro-life activist, was quick to point this out.
Equal access to kill a son or daughter is NOT justice.
JUSTICE is the equitable distribution of punishment AND protection.
JUSTICE is rooted in the dignity of every human endowed by their Creator.
One cannot truly fight for JUSTICE while simultaneously denying it. https://t.co/6Lf8ZziETb

“Pastor, Equal access to kill a son or daughter is NOT justice,” Watson, who won a Super Bowl with the New England Patriots, wrote in response to Warnock’s tweet. “JUSTICE is the equitable distribution of punishment AND protection.”
Warnock has claimed that his pro-abortion views are somehow completely consistent with his beliefs as a Christian pastor.
In August, he was asked Tim Bryant on his podcast, “Mission: Timpossible,” how support for abortion was consistent with his role as a “minister, a leader of the church, (and) a man of God.”
The Christian Post reported at the time that Warnock responded by declaring that health care is a “human right” and “something that the richest nation in the world provides for its citizens,” statements that you’re more likely to find in the unhinged ramblings of modern-day Marxists than the pages of Scripture.
“[A]nd for me, reproductive justice is consistent with my commitment to that,” Warnock declared. “I believe unequivocally in a woman’s right to choose.”
He stated that when a woman decides to have an abortion, this is “something that we don’t want government engaged in” and is rather something that should be decided “between her and her doctor and her minister.”
“I will fight for that in the United States Senate,” he vowed.
Clearly, this commitment has kept up its momentum.
LifeNews notes that, “If elected, Warnock could help Democrat leaders achieve their goals of forcing taxpayers to fund elective abortions, packing the Supreme Court with pro-abortion activist judges and forcing states to allow viable unborn babies to be killed in late-term abortions.”
