An Alabama probate court recognized an aborted child as a person with rights this week, which enabled a father to sue an abortion clinic, its staff and a pharmaceutical company on behalf of his aborted child’s estate.
“We are very pleased with the court’s decision to recognize Baby Roe as a person who has a right to have her case heard. It is the first time in history, as far as we know, the voice of those who cannot 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.
“This case is through the work of those dedicated attorneys and a dedicated father, Ryan Magers,” Glidewell explained.
Magers’ attorney, Brent Helms, told the Caller Wednesday that this was the first part of a two-part case, saying, “The probate judge in Madison County Alabama recognized Baby Roe, an aborted fetus — as a person — and so that was a win.”
“Not only that,” he added, “but granted Baby Roe the opportunity then, by Alabama law, to sue on Baby Roe’s own behalf by and through Ryan Magers, who was named as Baby Roe’s administrator or personal representative. . . . So, now we have a wrongful death case, which is part two, essentially. And that allows Ryan to sue on his own behalf and then as the administrator of the estate of Baby Roe.”
Madison County Probate Judge Frank Barger was questioned when WHNT 19 News realized that “Baby Roe” — the name being used by the suit to recognize the aborted baby — was an unborn child when Barger was making his ruling.
