Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock mocked conservative pro-lifers from the pulpit, echoing leftist claims that many of those same people don’t care about babies post-birth.
“Throughout the ’80s, ’90s, and early part of this century we have been frustrated with those on the religious right,” Warnock said in the 2016 sermon. “Those who have been focused on one or two bedroom issues, and we have been asking them ‘Why is that you don’t have anything to say about poverty? How is it that you can say you are pro-life before the baby is born, but you won’t support child health care after the baby is here?”
Warnock continued by ridiculing Republicans for being a “family values party” while opposing gay marriage. He also condemned then-newly elected President Donald Trump as a “sexual predator on his way to the Oval Office.”
This isn’t Warnock’s first attempt to downplay the pro-life position with leftist rhetoric. In addition to spouting his radical leftist beliefs from the pulpit, such as praising communist dictator Fidel Castro, condemning and insulting law enforcement officers, and criticizing Israel as an “apartheid” state, Warnock has openly advocated for the murder of babies for a long time.
Not only has Warnock made a “woman’s right to choose” a central part of his job as a pastor and now his Senate campaign, earning the endorsements of groups such as NARAL and the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, but he also often relies on arguments for the expansion of government-provided health care as an excuse to further his pro-abortion agenda.
“Reverend Warnock believes a patient’s room is too small a place for a woman, her doctor, and the U.S. government and that these are deeply personal health care decisions — not political ones,” Warnock campaign spokesman Michael J. Brewer told Fox News.
“He also believes those who are concerned about life ought to be focused on the incredibly high rates of infant mortality and maternal mortality and working to make sure we are expanding access to health care, not taking it away,” the spokesman continued.
