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.”
