Women Speak Out, an anti-abortion PAC, revealed its $1 million ad on Monday.
“Stacey Abrams and Raphael Warnock support aborting babies not just at six weeks, not just at 15 weeks, when a baby can feel pain, but up to 40 weeks,” the 30-second ad said.
The ad opens by reminding viewers of Abrams’s claim that a fetal heartbeat at six weeks is a “manufactured sound” — a comment that drew criticism, with podcaster Joe Rogan calling it “crazy cult talk.”
Last week, Abrams suggested abortion as a solution to rising inflation, saying that “having children is why you’re worried about your price for gas.”
Warnock, who has described himself as a “pro-choice pastor,” voted in favor of the Women’s Health Protection Act in May. The bill prohibits most governmental restrictions on abortion while allowing for an abortion after fetal viability in situations in which the “pregnancy risks the patient’s life or health.”
As a pro-choice pastor, I’ve always believed that a patient’s room is way too small for a woman, her doctor, and the United States government.
I’ll always fight to protect a woman’s right to choose. And that will never change.

The ad will air on broadcast and cable stations in Georgia for one week.
Warnock is up against Republican Herschel Walker in a bid for reelection in the Senate. Last week, he released ads attacking Walker over abortion hypocrisy after a woman claimed Walker paid for her to get an abortion.
