Herschel Walker’s View On Abortion
Walker, much like his Republican colleagues, has a “no exception” policy. He wants to ban abortion throughout the country and believe even rape or incest victim should not be allowed to get one.
Walker has also stated that he would support a national ban on abortion.
Herschel Walker Running For Georgia Senate Seat
In May, Walker won the Republican nomination for a U.S. Senate seat.
As the GOP looks to recover control of the Senate after losing both of Georgia’s U.S. Senate seats in the runoff elections in January 2021, Walker, who is supported by former President Donald Trump, is one of the party’s top fundraisers.
He will be going up against Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock in November.
