  • Herschel Walker on Wednesday said he supports a total abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest.

  • "There's no exception in my mind," Walker said. "Like I say, I believe in life. I believe in life."

  • The Georgia primary takes place on Tuesday with Trump-backed Walker ahead in the polls.

Following a campaign event on Wednesday, Georgia GOP candidate for Senate Herschel Walker said he supports a total abortion ban with no exception for rape, incest, or the health of the mother.

"There's no exception in my mind," Walker said after a campaign speech, The Hill reported. "Like I say, I believe in life. I believe in life."

Walker's campaign confirmed to Insider that the former professional football player turned politician "is unapologetically pro-life with no exceptions."

The Georgia state primary election is set to take place Tuesday, with Herschel, a Trump-endorsed GOP candidate, leading in the polls and likely to secure the Republican nomination for Senate.

Should he secure the nomination, Walker will face off against incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock in November.
