A coalition of Black Christian ministers have criticized Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock for his support for abortion. In addition to running as a Democrat, Warnock is a senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta.
Warnock is running in a run-off for one of the two vacant U.S. Senate seats in Georgia, facing Republican Kelly Loeffler in a special election to fill the seat of Johnny Isakson, who resigned due to health in 2019.
In an open letter to Warnock sent Dec. 11, more than 25 Black Christian ministers, most of them from Georgia, said they "feel compelled to confront your most recent statements concerning abortion."
"Your open advocacy of abortion is a scandal to the faith and to the Black community," the ministers wrote to Warnock.
