Alabama Judge Recognizes Aborted Baby as Legal Person Allowing Personhood Alabama Case to Proceed
09 March, 2019, 02:16
A man who sued an abortion pill manufacturer and abortion clinic in Alabama has gained the right to recognise the aborted foetus's legal rights, a judge ruled on Wednesday.
Magers will represent Baby Roe's estate in court following an unprecedented legal decision by Madison County Probate Judge Frank Barger, who claims he knew he was granting the rights to an aborted fetus, Helms said, contrary to an earlier report by WHNT, which suspected the judge was hoodwinked into giving the dead embryo standing in a court of law.
Ryan Magers, 19, of Madison County, claims his girlfriend got a medicated abortion at the Alabama Women's Center for Reproductive Alternatives in Huntsville in February 2017 when she was six weeks pregnant, according to legal documents, even though he urged her not to terminate the pregnancy.
Magers is now suing the clinic, three unnamed agents, and the unknown pharmaceutical company that produced the abortion-inducing medication for wrongful death on behalf of himself and his unborn child.
Brent Helms, the attorney for Magers and "Baby Roe", says the case breaks legal ground. "It is the first time in history, as far as we know, the voice of those who can not speak for themselves has been heard in a court setting", Laura Glidewell, a spokesperson for pro-life nonprofit Personhood Alabama, told The Daily Caller Wednesday.
In the lawsuit, Magers said while he lost his baby to abortion, he pursued the lawsuit for other men who are in the same situation.
"I believe every child from conception is a baby and deserves to live", Magers said. But according to WHNT, the court papers do not make it clear that "Baby Roe" was an aborted fetus.
"The Alabama Supreme Court and Chief Justice Tom Parker have set a precedent that the value of the life of an unborn child is no less than the value of the lives of other persons".
"I'm here for the men who actually want to have their baby", he said.
Judge Barger's approval for Magers to sue on behalf of his unborn child has sparked outcry from abortion advocates and praise from abortion opponents.
"Unfortunately for pro-life Americans, it is hard to see how this decision can survive review on appeal unless and until the U.S. Supreme Court overrules Roe v. Wade", Klukowski told Breitbart News.
The news comes after debates on "foetal rights" has gained traction in the United States, where abortion rights groups slamming Judge Barger's ruling as a unsafe precedent.
The Alabama Women's Center for Reproductive Alternatives has until April 1 to respond to the suit.
Ilyse Hogue, president of the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws Pro-Choice America, tweeted Tuesday afternoon that the lawsuit is a "very scary case" that is 'asserting [a] woman's rights [are] third in line'.
