Second woman says Herschel Walker pressured her to have an abortion

“This is a lie. I said it once, and I moved on, my campaign moved on,” he said. “We worry about what Georgians are talking about. They are talking about this inflation. They talk about crime, they talk about men in women’s sport, they talk about that border.

The identity of the woman has not been released as she says she fears reprisals. Allred provided a photo she said showed Walker on a bed in the woman’s hotel room, along with cards and letters she said she wrote to him. Allred did not provide a receipt for the abortion at the request of reporters.

“Herschel Walker is a hypocrite and he is not fit to be a US senator. We don’t need people in the US Senate who profess one thing and do another,” the woman said. “Herschel Walker says he’s against female abortion, but he pressured me to do one.”

The woman said she was a supporter of former President Donald Trump and her decision to come forward was not politically motivated. Instead, she said she didn’t believe Walker was “morally fit to be a U.S. senator and that’s why I’m speaking up and giving evidence.”

Allred said Walker met the woman in the 1980s while playing for the Dallas Cowboys and they quickly struck up a romantic relationship. She said she signed cards from Walker, including one with a handwritten poem professing her love for the woman.

Allred played a voicemail recording that Walker left for the woman in February 1992 while competing in the Olympics for the US bobsled team. “I want to tell you that I love you and think of you,” he said in the recording.

In June 1992, after being traded to the Eagles, the woman traveled with the team for games. In April 1993, Walker learned she was pregnant. She was surprised, Allred said, because she had been on birth control throughout their relationship.

“Mr. Walker clearly wanted her to have an abortion and convinced her to have it,” Allred said. She said he gave her money and she went to a clinic in Dallas , but she decided not to.

“She was overwhelmed with emotion. She couldn’t go through with it. And she left the clinic in tears,” Allred said.

Allred said Walker was “overwhelmed” and urged her to return to the clinic for an abortion. The next day, Walker drove her to the clinic and waited in the parking lot for hours until she came out.

After that, Allred said, he walked away from the woman and then sent her a note of apology. This note was not displayed at the press conference.

She is the second woman to come forward anonymously to claim that Walker urged her to have the procedure after becoming pregnant with him. This other woman, who declined to speak to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, told other outlets that Walker paid for her abortion in 2009 and urged her to have a second.

Polls show a close contest between Warnock and Walker, and both campaigns are gearing up for a runoff in December if neither candidate wins a majority of votes in the Nov. 8 election.

In a statement, Warnock’s assistant Rachel Petri said the allegation is “the latest example of a disturbing pattern we have seen play out again and again and again.”

“Herschel Walker should not represent Georgians in the US Senate,” she said.
