An unnamed woman has claimed that Georgia Republican Senate nominee, Herschel Walker, had forced her into an abortion in 1993. The woman, whose identity has not been revealed, announced the same at a press conference. She was virtually present at the press meet along with her lawyer, Gloria Allred, but did not show her face.

The unnamed accuser said in her statement, “He has publicly taken the position that he is about life and against abortion under any circumstance when in fact he pressured me to have an abortion and personally ensured that it occurred by driving me to the clinic and paying for it”, in reference to Walker. She further added, “I do not believe that Herschel is morally fit to be a U.S. senator and that is the reason why I am speaking up and providing proof”.

Walker has, however, denied all accusations brought against him. He said at a campaign event, “I already told people this is a lie, and I’m not going to entertain, continue to carry a lie along. And I also want to let you know that I didn’t kill JFK either”. The 60-year-old Senate candidate also said that it was a ploy by Democrats to win the seat he is contesting for.

This is not the first time that Walker has been accused of forcing a woman to go for an abortion. The candidate vehemently denied a claim earlier this month from a different woman who said Walker paid for and encouraged her abortion in 2009, two years before she gave birth to their son.

The second round of abortion allegations against Walker returned the issue to the forefront of the campaign in the final two weeks before the midterm elections. Walker is competing against Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock in a tight race that could help determine party control of the Senate. The Republican was campaigning Wednesday in north Georgia as part of his ongoing tour of the state.
