‘Pro-life’ Herschel Walker paid for ex-girlfriend’s abortion, report allegations


Herschel Walker, the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate race from Georgia who says he opposes abortion under all circumstances, pushed a woman he was dating in 2009 to have an abortion, then reimbursed her for the procedure , reported The Daily Beast.

A woman who asked not to be identified told the outlet that the former NFL star urged her to have an abortion after conceiving a child when they dated more than a decade ago. She said she had the procedure and Walker reimbursed her, backing up her claim with a $575 receipt from an abortion clinic dated September 12, 2009, a ‘healing’ card allegedly signed by Walker and a bank deposit receipt containing an image of a signed personal check for $700 from Walker dated September 17, 2009.

The card says “Pray for you to feel better” and it’s signed with an “H” that looks a lot like Walker’s autograph, according to an image posted by The Daily Beast.

The woman said Walker sent her the check inside the card.

Walker called the allegation a “brainless lie” and said he denied the report “in the strongest terms possible.”

“I don’t take that anymore. I plan to sue the Daily Beast for this defamatory lie. It will be filed tomorrow morning,” he wrote in a statement on Twitter.

Press about the story on Fox NewsWalker said the Democrats had “endangered my children” and said, “They think they can scare me.”

“I send so many people to recover, I send so much of anything,” he said when asked if it was his signature on the card. “I have never asked anyone to have an abortion. I have never paid for an abortion. And that’s a lie.

Walker told reporters in May that he supported a ban on abortion with no exceptions, presumably including when a pregnancy is the result of rape or incest or endangers the health of the mother.

“There are no exceptions in my mind,” he said after a campaign speech in Macon, Georgia. “As I say, I believe in life. I believe in life.
