US court grants legal rights to aborted child as would-be father sues clinic on behalf of fetus

An Alabama teenager is suing the Alabama Women's Center, saying that the clinic gave a girl an abortion when he wanted the child, WAAY reports.

An Alabama county court recognized "Baby Roe" as a legitimate plaintiff in the case, just four months after the state amended its constitution to recognize the personhood and rights of unborn children.

Legal documents show that 19-year-old Ryan Magers, of Madison County, believes a girl got a medicated abortion back in February 2017 when she was six weeks pregnant with his unborn child.

Ryan Magers is suing Alabama Women's Center for Reproductive Alternatives for aborting the fetus he says he fathered.

According to Helms, Magers just "wants rights for fathers and unborn babies".

"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".

According to the suit, plaintiff Ryan Magers' former girlfriend discovered she was pregnant with Baby Roe in early 2017 and chose to have the child aborted. The US Supreme Court has always been clear that fetuses are not people and greater importance is placed on a woman's rights over her partner's because she is the one who carries and delivers the baby, Dov Fox, a University of San Diego law professor, told the Washington Post.

Judger Barger was asked by WHNT if he knew that he was granting an aborted fetus legal rights, but he declined to comment.

Magers' lawyer Brent Helms said he was confident that the case could make it to the state supreme court - because existing law in Alabama recognizes that life begins at conception.

Cobb, who left the White House past year , made the glowing statements amid reports Mueller's report could soon be released . The Judiciary Committee is investigating possible obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power.

The suit identified Magers as the "father of his deceased child".

"I'm here for the men who actually want to have their baby", he said.

Huntsville-based Alabama Women's Centre for Reproductive Alternatives and an unknown pharmaceutical company that manufactures pills "designed to kill unborn children" were named as defendants.

But the case has alarmed pro-choice activists.

An Alabama judge's ruling has given legal standing to an aborted embryo.

Helms anticipates that the case, which is now in Alabama's lowest state courts, will likely make its way to the state's Supreme Court.

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'.

"It has the potential to be used in other states, and it's part of abortion opponents being emboldened... and conservatives turning over every rock to see how they can ban abortion", said Elizabeth Nash of the abortion rights advocacy group Guttmacher Institute.

The abortion clinic has until April 1 to respond to the suit.
