Commenting on Democrat Raphael Warnock, who will face Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) in a runoff election in January, Rev. Franklin Graham said that the pro-choice Warnock "champions the killing of babies" in the womb through abortion.
Graham also mocked Warnock's claim that he is a fighter for "reproductive justice," which Graham explained is a euphemism for "injustice," the "genocide of entire masses of babies."
Warnock, the senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, Ga., tweeted on Nov. 17, "I will always fight for reproductive justice."

In response, Rev. Graham said on Facebook, "Planned Parenthood calls Georgia Democratic Senate Candidate Raphael Warnock a champion for reproductive rights. Truthfully translated, that means Raphael Warnock champions the killing of babies in the safety of a mother’s womb through abortion."
"Candidate Warnock tweeted that he supports 'reproductive justice.'" said Graham. "Justice? What an ironic term to use."
"Abortion represents the biggest, most significant INJUSTICE of our time in history—genocide of entire masses of babies," said Graham.
He continued, "I hope the Church and all Georgians will see through this demonic-driven abortion agenda. This is not just a political issue, it is a moral and biblical issue. We need leadership in our nation that sees the wisdom in defending life."
"The Georgia runoff can have a huge impact on our Senate, which affects all of us," said Rev. Graham. "Please join me in praying that candidates who support life—not the murder of babies in the womb—will be elected."
In his Facebook post, Rev. Graham linked to an article about former NFL tight-end Benjamin Watson, who is active in the pro-life movement.

Equal access to kill a son or daughter is NOT justice.
JUSTICE is the equitable distribution of punishment AND protection.
JUSTICE is rooted in the dignity of every human endowed by their Creator.
One cannot truly fight for JUSTICE while simultaneously denying it. https://t.co/6Lf8ZziETb
Watson, a graduate of the University of Georgia, had also commneted on Warnock's tweet, stating that "equal access to kill a son or daughter is NOT justice."
