Herschel Walker, the Republican nominee for Georgia’s U.S. Senate race who says he opposes abortion under any circumstances, pushed a woman he was dating in 2009 to get an abortion and then reimbursed her for the procedure, The Daily Beast reported.
A woman who asked not to be identified told the news outlet that the former NFL star urged her to get an abortion after they conceived a child while they were dating more than a decade ago. She said she had the procedure and Walker reimbursed her for it, supporting her claim with a $575 receipt from an abortion clinic dated Sept. 12, 2009, a “get well” card allegedly signed by Walker and a bank deposit receipt containing an image of a signed $700 personal check from Walker dated Sept. 17, 2009.
The card says “Pray you are feeling better,” and it’s signed with an “H” that closely resembles Walker’s autograph, according to an image published by The Daily Beast.
The woman said Walker mailed her the check inside the card.
