Herschel Walker denied 2009 abortion claims

Dunwoody, Ga. — Herschel Walker, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Georgia who has passionately opposed abortion rights, paid for an abortion for his girlfriend in 2009, according to a report released late Monday. The contender labeled the allegation a “blatant falsehood” and announced his intention to sue.

A lady told The Daily Beast that Walker paid for her abortion while they were dating. The news organization analyzed a receipt indicating that Walker paid $575 for the abortion, a get-well card from Walker, and her bank deposit records displaying the image of a $700 personal check from Walker dated five days after the abortion receipt.

The Daily Beast said that Walker advised the woman to terminate the pregnancy, stating that the moment was not right for a child.

Tuesday morning, Walker will launch a lawsuit against the news site, he stated in a statement.

“This is a complete fabrication, which I repudiate in the strongest terms possible,” he wrote.

Matt Fuller, the politics editor for The Daily Beast, responded through Twitter, “I can assure you that we stand by every word and are confident in the piece.”

Roger Sollenberger, the writer who broke the piece, tweeted, “The woman, in response to Herschel Walker’s accusation that our report that he paid for her abortion is a “flat-out lie,” stated, “It is most certainly not a lie!”

Walker was asked if he remembered delivering a $700 check to a girlfriend during his appearance on Sean Hannity’s Fox News program on Monday evening.

He stated, “Well, I sent money to a large number of folks.” “I give money to individuals frequently because I am constantly assisting others. I believe in being generous. I am blessed by God. I desire to bless others

The allegation against Walker is the most recent in a string of revelations about the football legend’s past that have shaken the campaign of the first-time candidate in one of the most competitive Senate contests. Walker admitted earlier this year that he has three children, something he had not previously discussed publicly.

Walker has frequently bragged about his work assisting service members and veterans with mental health issues. The Associated Press reported in May that he exaggerated his position in a for-profit operation that is believed to have exploited veterans and service personnel while robbing the government, as evidenced by several documents.

The Associated Press also stated that a search of public records revealed allegations that Walker routinely threatened the life of his ex-wife, misrepresented his financial achievements, and scared business associates with his unstable behavior. Walker has revealed his long struggle with mental illness on occasion.

On Monday night, his son Christian tweeted, “My mother and I would greatly appreciate it if my father quit lying and making fun of us. You are not a “family man” when you abandoned us for a group of women, threatened to kill us, and forced us to travel six times in six months to escape your aggression.

As a Senate candidate, Walker has supported a national ban on abortions with no exceptions for cases involving rape, incest, or a woman’s health being in jeopardy. This is notable given that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade and Democrats in Congress have been discussing codifying abortion rights into federal law.

Throughout his campaign, Walker has stated repeatedly, “I’m for life.” When asked whether he would permit exceptions, he stated that there are “no justifications” for the practice.

As the Republican nominee, Walker has avoided numerous inquiries regarding his prior support for a national abortion ban, instead attempting to shift the focus to his Democratic opponent, Sen. Raphael Warnock, who supports abortion rights. Walker frequently describes abortion as “a lady killing her baby,” and he cannot comprehend how Warnock, a Baptist preacher, can support the legalization of the procedure.

Monday night, while campaigning in Dunwoody, an Atlanta suburb, Warnock emphasized his support for abortion rights.

“I have an immense respect for life. I have a profound and abiding respect for free will. I believe that a patient’s room is too small and crowded for a lady, her physician, and the United States government,” he stated, stressing Walker’s support for a nationwide ban.

When informed with the Daily Beast article and asked whether it could alter the outcome in Georgia, Warnock was dismissive. He said, “I’ll let the experts decide.”
