Court grants unborn baby legal rights
An Alabama man is suing Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives, LLC. for providing an abortion to a woman who he says was pregnant with his baby.
Brent Helms, the attorney for both Ryan Magers, who claims to be the father, and ‘Baby Roe,’ the unborn fetus, said Magers did not want the woman to have an abortion. Helms said Magers was seeking legal counsel at the time of the abortion. Helms said Barger’s decision marks the first time in the U.S. that an aborted fetus is recognized to have legal rights.
