OKLAHOMA CITY – Dr. Anthony L. Jordan, Executive Director-Treasurer of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma (BGCO) praised Senate Bill 1267, a bill filed at the legislature which would prevent Oklahoma taxpayer dollars from funding organizations that sell or traffic body parts and tissue of aborted babies.

“Oklahoma Baptists have consistently supported policies that protect the unborn and that recognize the sanctity of all human life. The Oklahoma legislature should never use taxpayer dollars to support any group that sells or traffics body parts and tissue from aborted babies,” Jordan said.

“The practice of selling and trafficking body parts of aborted babies is repulsive and pure evil, and this bill is a strong statement that we want no part of it here in Oklahoma.”
