Oklahoma gubernatorial candidate calls for abolition of human abortion

A pastor in Yukon, Oklahoma, who is now running for governor said he would abolish abortion in their state if he wins, saying pro-life bills that have been passed only aim to regulate the termination of pregnancies and not stop them.

In a video posted on YouTube last week, Liberty Church pastor Dan Fisher lamented the death of around 250,000 unborn in Oklahoma since abortion was legalized in 1973. The Yukon minister, who is also a former member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives, said that figure did not even include pregnancies terminated using devices or abortifacients, Christian News Network relayed.

In addition, Pastor Fisher said pro-lifers have passed measures that only regulated abortion, such as those that require an ultrasound prior to the procedure and some which prohibit the selling of fetuses' dismembered body parts. He promised to abolish abortion if he was elected as governor of Oklahoma, because there is still no law which aims to put an end to the killing of the unborn.

"If elected, I will do everything in my power to bring this evil to an end and take executive action to ensure that all Oklahomans are equally protected, including the preborn," Pastor Fisher said in the video. "I will disregard any unjust rulings or perversions of the U.S. Constitution that claim that there is a right to murder preborn human beings in the womb."

When Fisher first announced his candidacy on Aug. 22, he promised to focus on abolishing abortion, auditing everything, state sovereignty, and proper government. He said he was running to bring back the "conservative principles" to the government and to bring justice to the 15 unborn children who die each day in the state, The Edmond Sun reported.

Moreover, Fisher talked about the gaps in the country's budget and how American taxpayers were being heavily laden with the government's burdens. He vowed to challenge all the government's undertakings by asking if each task was part of its "proper role."
