Former football star Herschel Walker said a few days ago he supports abortion bans without any exceptions for rape, incest, or the health of the mother.
“There’s no exception in my mind,” Walker told reporters after a campaign speech. “Like I say, I believe in life. I believe in life.”
The Georgia Senate candidate is getting set for the 2022 primary on Tuesday and all signs point to Walker cruising to a smooth victory for the Republican nomination to face off against Sen. Raphael Warnock (D) in November.
Abortion has become a hot topic ever since Politico leaked a draft opinion showing that the Supreme Court is set to overturn Roe v. Wade.
If the case is overturned, laws regarding abortion would largely be up to the states.
Herschel Walker was one of the greatest athletes to ever play in the NFL. After a great college career at Georgia, and after finding success in the USFL, Walker was a star for the Dallas Cowboys. Walker ultimately ran for 1,616 yards and 15 touchdowns in his first season, and the Bulldogs were very good.
Walker not only had success in football. He also competed at the 1992 Olympics in bobsledding and finished seventh, according to ESPN. He additionally tried mixed martial arts out after his football career.
