DUNWOODY, Ga. (AP) — Herschel Walker, a former staunch opponent of abortion rights, paid for his girlfriend’s abortion in 2009, according to a new report released Monday night. The candidate called the allegation an “outright lie” and said he would prosecute.
The Daily Beast interviewed a woman who said Walker paid for her abortion when they were dating. The news outlet looked at a receipt showing she paid $575 for the surgery, as well as a Walker rehab card and her bank records showing a $700 personal check that Walker wrote five days after the abortion receipt.
