A Georgia pro-lifer says a media disinformation campaign has failed to thwart the appointment of a new conservative U.S. Senator.
As OneNewsNow has reported, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) has appointed financial executive Kelly Loeffler to the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Johnny Isakson (R), who is retiring. Joshua Edmonds of the Georgia Life Alliance, who sat in on a meeting with Loeffler prior to the announcement, says a lot of misinformation is circulating.
"What we heard consistently from her is that she is unapologetically pro-life, that she supports Georgia's heartbeat bill, which is the most landmark piece of legislation our state has ever passed," Edmonds relays. "She has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to pro-life candidates around the country."
However, several allegations indicating Loeffler has supported abortion, specifically Planned Parenthood, by making donations to the Women's National Basketball Association have surfaced. And the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List warned last week that Loeffler is an "unacceptable pick."
"In regards to the connection between Planned Parenthood and the WNBA, everything that we've been shown on record is that there is a connection between the league and Planned Parenthood, not to Ms. Loeffler and Planned Parenthood," Edmonds notes. "She said she's never given a dollar to Planned Parenthood or to abortion providers, and we have no record that that's not the case."
She was on the board of Grady Hospital, which was reportedly associated with an abortionist training program. But Grady stopped doing elective abortions a decade ago and no longer trains anyone to do abortions. Meanwhile, Loffler says, "When it comes to protecting innocent life, I look to God because every life is a blessing," and her just-launched website declares she is looking forward to supporting pro-life legislation and the president's judicial nominees.
"I haven’t spent my life trying to get to Washington, but here's what folks are going to find out about me," she said at a press conference this week. "I'm a life-long conservative -- Pro-Second Amendment, pro-military, pro-wall, and pro-Trump. I make no apologies for my conservative values and will proudly support President Trump's conservative judges."
