Raphael Warnock on Abortion

 

 


Pro-choice: focused on infant and maternal mortality

Warnock: I have a profound reverence for life and an abiding respect for choice. But those who are concerned about life, and I certainly am, ought to be focused on the incredibly high rates of infant mortality and maternal mortality in our country when compared to other developed nations, that's something that government can work on and I've been working on it in my entire career.

A decision between a woman and her doctor

Q: Abortion--Keep legal or ban?

Raphael Warnock: Legal. Supports "a woman's right to choose; a decision between her and her doctor." Opposes "all partisan attacks defunding healthcare providers like Planned Parenthood."

Kelly Loeffler: Ban. "Unapologetically pro-life." Has co-sponsored "four bills to protect the unborn." Called for investigating Planned Parenthood for receiving taxpayer funds under the Paycheck Protection Program.

Planned Parenthood endorsement: will fight new restrictions

Planned Parenthood Action Fund said it backs Warnock. Staci Fox, the head of Planned Parenthood's Atlanta-based chapter, called Warnock a "dedicated champion" who will fight new abortion restrictions in the U.S. Senate. "The people of Georgia are done seeing the Trump administration and the current senators try to use every trick in the book to chip away at health care access and safety net programs, and are ready for a bold leader who will fight back against these harmful policies," she said.

Longtime supporter of contraceptive access & abortion rights

Warnock, who worked as a sexual health educator before joining the clergy, has long been a vocal supporter of abortion rights. Dr. Ginger Davis Floyd, a former state health official, recalled his work in college seeking to reduce teenage pregnancy and infant mortality. "From first-hand experience, I know he is a tremendous advocate for women's health, contraceptive access, and the pro-choice movement," she said.

Supports Roe and a woman's right to choose

Warnock has fought to increase safe and affordable access to contraceptives and achieve reproductive justice. With Washington politicians still working to overturn˙Roe v. Wade˙and repeal the Affordable Care Act, which would allow insurance companies to treat pregnancy as a pre-existing condition, Reverend Warnock recognizes that women's health care is under attack like never before. As a Senator, he will stand up for reproductive justice and a woman's right to choose.

Pro-Planned Parenthood, according to CC survey.

Warnock supports the Christian Coalition survey question on abortion funding

The Christian Coalition inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Public Funding of Abortions (Such as Govt. Health Benefits and Planned Parenthood)?' Self-description by Christian Coalition of America: "These guides help give voters a clear understanding of where candidates stand on important pro-family issues" for all Senate and Presidential candidates.

Pro-choice, according to PVS survey.

Warnock supports the PVS survey question on abortion rights

Project Vote Smart inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'Abortion: Do you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?' PVS self-description: "The Political Courage Test provides voters with positions on key issues. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
