Alabama Supreme Court ruling protects unborn children
Here is a link to a recent (January 11, 2013) ruling from the Alabama Supreme Court holding that the state’s chemical endangerment of a child law applies to protect unborn children. http://alabamaappellatewatch.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Ex-parte-Hope-Elisabeth-Ankrom.pdf The ruling came in two cases involving two women whose use of illegal drugs while pregnant caused harm to their unborn children.
An opinion by Justice Parker stated: “The decision of this Court today is in keeping with the widespread legal recognition that unborn children are persons with rights that should be protected by law. Today, the only major area in which unborn children are denied legal protection is abortion, and that denial is only because of the dictates of Roe.”
