Former Oklahoma Senator Regrets Writing Legislation That Only Regulated, But Didn’t End, Abortion

In a video recently shared by Oklahoma gubernatorial candidate Dan Fisher, former state Senator Randy Brogdon expressed regret that he had written legislation that only regulated abortion in the state, but allowed the murder of the unborn to continue.

“I’ve been a pro-life Republican my entire life. I was so pro-life as a state senator, I wrote what I thought was a good piece of legislation,” he explained in the video, which has generated 59K views on Facebook as of press time. “It was an ultrasound bill requiring an ultrasound be given before a mom could abort her baby.”

“But since that time, thousands of babies have continued to be murdered right here in the state of Oklahoma, in accordance with my legislation,” Brogdon lamented, being moved to tears. “And for that, I repent.”

He said that he should have instead presented legislation that would have brought an end to abortion in Oklahoma.

“What I should have been about was offering legislation to abolish abortion,” Brogdon stated. “Pro-life legislation, all it does is regulate abortion. Do you realize that there is not a single piece of legislation in the entire country where murder of any kind is regulated? It is punished, it is criminalized, as it should be.”

“There is only one way to end abortion and that is to abolish it,” he continued. “Get rid of it.”

Brogdon, who supports Fisher’s candidacy, noted that while there are a number of men running for the governor’s office who claim to be pro-life, most of them—unlike Fisher—do not intend to end abortion.

“Here’s what that means: Today, right here in Oklahoma, 20 babies have been murdered. What that means [is], tomorrow, 20 babies will be murdered. If that’s not a gun punch…” he said, again being moved to tears.

As previously reported, Fisher, the pastor of Liberty Church in Yukon, has been vocal about his intention to end abortion and declare state sovereignty if elected governor.

“Tragically, some 250,000 preborn Oklahomans have been deprived of their right to life since the U.S. Supreme legitimized the slaughter in 1973,” he said in a video posted last September. “And that’s not even counting those killed by various abortifacient drugs and devices.”

“For example, pro-lifers have passed laws requiring that a mother must wait 72 hours before she has her baby killed,” Fisher outlined. “Pro-life legislators have passed laws requiring the abortionist to perform an ultrasound, which the mother may look at—or not.”

“[There are] laws allowing a baby’s body to be ripped into parts, of course, just as long as those parts are not sold,” he continued. “And laws that allow the baby’s body to be dismembered as long as the instrument used does not employ the convergence of two levers.”

Fisher said that while such legislation may have deterred some mothers from killing their children, it still affirms abortion as a legal choice.

“[I]n the end, they only spell out the requirements for killing a newborn baby; they do not prevent the murder,” he lamented. “If you think about it, these laws are basically pro-choice.”

    “Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the Republican party, and they’re sure trying to do so, it’s going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can’t and won’t compromise. I know, I’ve tried to deal with them.”

    Folks, this is what it looks like to mourn over the sins we committed against God, to change our way of thinking and doing (repentance) and turning back to God. This is what God desires, “IF MY PEOPLE which are called by MY NAME (Jesus), shall humble THEMSELVES, pray and seek MY FACE (Gods not mans) and TURN from THEIR WICKED WAYS, then (and only then) I (God) will hear from heaven and will HEAL their land” 2 Chronicles 7:14. This is what God has spoken, IF we do the first part, THEN He will do the second. That is the answer to this nations Woes. May God bless you Sir for your obedience to His word. May God make your way prosperous so that you can turn the people of God back to their LORD by the testimony of your own repentance. This is the good and faithful servant of the LORD Jesus Christ. The Old Testament was written for OUR (Jesus followers included) instructions. That is what the NEW Testament teaches, so don’t say we don’t need the Old Testament instructions, if the New Testament says we do. Do not add to or delete from Gods words. ALL of scripture (Old and New) is NEEDFUL for reproof (gentle correction), for rebuke (more harsh correction when we are stubborn), for teaching (what God wills), and for training in righteousness (doing what God says is right and good) SO THAT (the purpose) the man of God will be FULLY EQUIPPED for every good work. Are you fully equipped? If not, why not? What is more pressing for your time than to sit down and learn at the feet of Jesus, as Mary did. Martha was so busy serving God that she wasn’t sitting down and learning from Him. Then she wanted the LORD to make her sister get up and walk away from Jesus teachings and be busy and worried about many things like her. Jesus told her that Mary had chosen the MOST NEEDFUL thing and it would not be taken from her. Are you acting more like Martha or Mary? Examine your heart. God is smarter than us, listen to Him, His instructions are for our good. Doing your own will or the worlds will is a trap. The fear of man is a snare and a trap, open the book of proverbs and learn some of Gods wisdom. May those who have ears to hear (willing to listen and obey), hear what the SPIRIT has to say (what the will of God is which is revealed in the entirety of His word) I ask this in the precious name of JESUS CHRIST, AMEN!
