Here is a LifeNews.com report on a decision from the Alabama Supreme Court dealing with the state’s unborn victim of violence statute. Such statutes treat unborn children as “persons” and so acts that take the life of unborn children are treated as separate crimes. A person who killed a pregnant women and her unborn child would be guilty of a double murder.
In a concurring opinion, Justice Parker again urged the US Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. Here is a quote from Justice Parker’s opinion:
“I concur fully with the Court’s rationale that unborn children are persons entitled to the full and equal protection of the law. I write specially to expound upon the principles presented in the main opinion and to note the continued legal anomaly and logical fallacy that is Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973); I urge the United States Supreme Court to overrule this increasingly isolated exception to the rights of unborn children.”
