A contender for the US Senate seat in Georgia named Herschel Walker has said that all forms of abortion need to be criminalized.
The contentious remark was made by the contender for the Republican nomination on Wednesday when he was talking to the reporters after his campaign address.
Herschel Walker said, “In my perspective, there is no exception to this rule.” “Like I said, I believe in life. I have faith in the world.”
In an interview with The Hill, given after he had received criticism for his stance, Walker said that he believes in the pro-life way and will not apologize for it.
Herschel Walker is positioned to win the Republican nomination for governor of Georgia in the primary election that will take place on Tuesday, 2022. After that, in November, he will compete against the incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock.
Following the publication by reporters of a draft of a Supreme Court ruling that seeks to reverse the decision in Roe v. Wade, the subject of abortion has received a lot more attention in recent weeks. According to a prior revelation by Blavity, SC Justice Alito was the author of the draft majority opinion that sought to overturn the ruling from 1973 that guaranteed federal constitutional safeguards of abortion rights.
In the draft, Justice Alito stated that “Roe was outrageously erroneous from the very beginning.” “In our opinion, the decisions in Roe and Casey should be overturned. It is time to pay attention to the Constitution and give the subject of abortion back to the legislators who were elected by the people.
Democrats Fighting Against Herschel Walker
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, called the legislation Republicans are pushing around the country and the countrywide ban Republicans in Washington seek “the most extreme of the extreme.” This is the first step in the Republican Party’s effort to utilize the Supreme Court to restore the status quo of the Jim Crow era, in which black people, women, and the LGBTQ community were all treated as second class citizens.
