A second woman has come forward claiming Herschel Walker urged her to have an abortion
A new woman has made bombshell claims that pro-life Herschel Walker urged her to abort their unborn child.
The Trump-backed candidate, who is also anti-trans and against same-sex marriage, is currently running against Democrat Raphael Warnock in November’s midterm race.
In a news conference on Wednesday (October 26), the new claimant called the Republican hopeful “a hypocrite” who is “not fit to be a US senator”.
The woman, identified only as Jane Doe for privacy, goes as far to say the former football star turned-GOP Senate candidate personally drove her to a clinic to carry out a termination, against her wishes.
The latest accuser, who noted that she is an independent voter and has previously supported Donald Trump, said she became pregnant by Walker back when he was playing for the Dallas Cowboys.
She also detailed the experience, which took place in 1993, saying that after she first went to an abortion clinic in Dallas, Texas, she had left in tears because she was unable to go through with the procedure.
In an emotional statement that Doe presented without revealing her face, she recalled how she felt “confused, uncertain and scared”.
“I simply couldn’t go through with it. I left the clinic in tears,” she said.
Walker, seemingly, didn’t share her emotion and she claims he drove her back to the clinic and pressured her into seeing it through. Which she did, while he sat outside in the parking lot.
He then drove her to a pharmacy to get the medication prescribed afterwards, she said.
The new accusations were revealed during a virtual press conference hosted by Jane Doe’s attorney, Gloria Allred, during which she read a statement recounting their years-long romantic relationship, adding that she was protecting her identity not because she was “a coward,” but “to protect the ones I love.”
Allred, who has represented numerous alleged victims of sexual misconduct and assault, said that her client began dating the former football player in 1987 and had an intimate relationship with him for several years.
“Herschel Walker is a hypocrite, and he is unfit to be a U.S. Senator,” the woman continued.
“Herschel Walker says he is against women having abortions, but he pressured me to have one,” she continued, adding that she had been motivated to come forward after watching Walker deny previous allegations by another woman who claimed that he had paid for her abortion in 2009.
“And particularly, I saw him state that the woman’s claims were not true because he never signed any cards using the letter ‘H.’ I knew that was not true because he had often signed letters to me using ‘H,’” she said.
Allred provided three love notes Walker had signed with an “H.”
In addition, Daily Beast reports Allred cited other exhibits, along with the alleged love letters, including a 1992 voicemail and a hotel receipt, as proof that the two shared a romantic relationship.
She also shared a photograph, which the woman says she took of Walker in a hotel room bed during the affair.
Speaking at a campaign event in Dillard, Georgia, ahead of the news conference, Walker – who has a staunch anti-abortion stance – called the latest accusation a “lie”.
“I’m done with this foolishness,” he said. “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,” he then joked.
Earlier this month, Walker was forced to deny claims from another woman that he pressured her and paid for her to get an abortion in 2009.
She told The Daily Beast that once she became pregnant, the ex-footballer paid her $700 to have an abortion.
The publication said the woman provided a receipt from the abortion clinic, a bank deposit receipt including a photo of the $700 cheque signed by Walker, and a “get well” card carrying Walker’s signature.
Walker’s son, Christian Walker – who is gay and has made a name for himself as a right-wing TikToker – condemned his father following the initial claims, withdrawing the support he had previously lent during the campaign trail.
“Every family member of Herschel Walker asked him not to run for office because we all knew (some of) his past,” Christian wrote on his Twitter.
“Every single one. He decided to give us the middle finger and air out all of his dirty laundry in public, while simultaneously lying about it.”
“I’m done”, he added.

“I know my mom and I would appreciate if my father Herschel Walker stopped lying and making a mockery of us,” Christian continued on Twitter. “You’re not a ‘family man’ when you left us to bang a bunch of women, threatened to kill us, and had us move over 6 times in 6 months running from your violence.”
“I don’t care about someone who has a bad past and takes accountability,” Christian continued. “But how DARE YOU LIE and act as though you’re some ‘moral, Christian, upright man.’ You’ve lived a life of DESTROYING other people’s lives. How dare you.”

Christian has developed a following over the last few years sharing videos of himself yelling at his phone, often at Starbucks.
He has, however, proved largely unpopular among LGBTQ+ folk for rejecting “identifying as gay”, instead saying he is attracted to other men.
In June, Christian posted a video to Twitter with the caption, “Pride month makes no sense. You have all your rights, now SHUT UP. Your sexuality is not an accomplishment. Leave everyone alone and stop projecting your insecurity.”
Herschel Walker had been married to Cindy DeAngelis Grossman for 19 years, during which time they shared a son – Christian. Walker also has three further children from extra-marital affairs, who he publicly acknowledged for the first time in 2022.
During a campaign stop in September, in an effort to curry favour with Republican voters, Walker Sr. said transgender kids would not be able to access heaven.
