The last Senate race of the 2022 cycle has been decided. Sadly, pro-abortion Senator Raphael Warnock (D) defeated football legend and businessman Herschel Walker (R) in the runoff election in Georgia.
In one of the closest Senate races this cycle, Warnock won 51.4% to 48.6%.
Warnock outspent Walker by $126 million to $48.5 million. And the Democrats predictably stooped to character assassination.
With Warnock’s win, the breakdown of the Senate heading into 2023 will be 51 Democrats (49 Democrats and 2 Independents who caucus with the Democrats) to 49 Republicans. Democrats will finish the 2022 election cycle with a net gain of one seat as a result of protecting all their vulnerable incumbents and picking up the open seat in Pennsylvania which had previously been held by a Republican.
The radical pro-abortion agenda prioritizes passage of the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act (more accurately titled the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act”) and the elimination the Hyde Amendment, a longstanding appropriations rider that prevents taxpayer dollars from being used for abortions in many federal programs.
Thankfully, there will be a pro-life majority in the U.S. House who will be in a position to block many of the most dangerous components of the extreme pro-abortion agenda being pushed by the Biden Administration and Senate Democrats. Over the next two years, pro-life lawmakers will need our encouragement, our messages of support, and ultimately our votes if they are to succeed in defeating threats to innocent human lives.
It is crucial that grassroots pro-life advocates contact their representatives in the House and encourage them to stand up for life when the opportunity arises.

The pro-abortion movement’s top goals include instituting unlimited abortion nationwide, striking down existing state-level pro-life protections, and forcing every single American to fund abortions with their tax dollars. They are dead set on advancing this agenda by any means necessary so we must not get complacent.
The lives of countless unborn children and their mothers depend on our efforts!
