For the first time, an unborn fetus who was aborted was recognized as a party in a lawsuit. Fox News reports:
A teenager in Alabama is suing an abortion clinic for terminating the life of his unborn child against his wishes. On Tuesday, an Alabama county court recognized the aborted fetus, “Baby Roe,” as a plaintiff in the lawsuit, making the case one of the first of its kind, his lawyer said.
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. Alabama recognizes the personhood of a fetus, so Magers is suing on behalf of the fetus and himself.
“Baby Roe’s innocent life was taken by the profiteering of the Alabama Women’s Center and while no court will be able to bring Baby Roe back to life, we will seek the fullest extent of justice on behalf of Baby Roe and Baby Roe’s father,” Attorney Brent Helms said in a statement. “The time is ripe for consistency in Alabama’s jurisprudence: either we fully acknowledge the personhood of the unborn or we cherry pick which innocents we protect and which ones we trash for profit.”
Madison County probate court Judge Frank Barger allowed Magers to name his aborted child as a co-plaintiff in his case against Alabama Women’s Center, a move that came just four months after the passage of an amendment that gave fetuses personhood, or the same legal rights as any other person, under the state constitution.
Even though this is a civil suit instead of a criminal trial, this could be a new way to rollback the horrific violence of abortion on America.
Sorry for the loss of Baby Roe. Good Luck-!!! Many Blessings–!!!
God has to be very angry about infanticide and we, the people, of a country which is murdering millions of babies will someday feel the wrath of God Almighty. We live in a country which is guilty of murdering millions of God’s children and our tax dollars support the genocide and that makes all of us guilty of being supporters of these murders. It is just a matter of time before everyone in our country is going to feel the wrath of God.
I applaud the young man. This is a GREAT step towards stopping this insanity. Adoption is the alternative with so many wanting.
he wanted her to keep the baby-but would not marry her? Piece of trash-he should have NO say in what happened-and I am not a proponent of abortion-especially the insanity it has morphed into.
