Allegations that Herschel Walker paid for two abortions are not keeping a prominent anti-abortion group from shelling out money on behalf of the Georgia Republican ahead of his runoff election.

A group named Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out, announced plans Wednesday to spend at least $1 million on behalf of Walker’s campaign. If they follow through, it would bring their total Walker support to about $2 million since the Daily Beast reported that he encouraged and paid for his girlfriend to have an abortion. Walker denied that report, as well as a second woman’s allegation later that month that he paid for her abortion.

Ahead of runoff elections, super PACs are required to report any expenditures greater than $1,000 within 24 hours. Women Speak Out is yet to disclose any spending on Walker’s behalf since the general election last week, according to records with the Federal Election Commission. The group has reported spending just $100 backing Walker since Oct. 22. That number should shoot up soon.

Other pro-life groups have combined to spend $160,000 boosting Walker in the last month of the campaign. Most recently, the National Right to Life Victory Fund made a $57,000 ad buy on Nov. 1. Spokespeople for Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, the National Right to Life Victory Fund and a third anti-abortion group that has backed Walker in recent weeks, the National Pro-Life Alliance, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Voting in Georgia’s runoff ends on Dec. 6.
