Ryan Magers, a would-be father whose girlfriend aborted their 6-week-old unborn baby two years ago, was granted permission to sue the clinic that provided the abortion after an Alabama probate judge recognized the fetus as a person with legal rights.
Magers’ attorney, Brent Helms, told news station WAAY 31 that the recognition of the unborn child as a person with legal rights, is the first decision of its kind in the nation. Probate Judge Frank Barger signed off on a letter of petition allowing Magers to represent Baby Roe’s estate, WHNT 19 said.
“We have already had a victory, and it was the first one of its kind, ever,” Helms told WAAY 31. “This is the first estate that I’m aware of that has ever been opened for an aborted baby.”
Helms is now suing Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives on behalf of Magers and “Baby Roe” for providing a chemical abortion to his girlfriend even though he begged her not to end her pregnancy.
“I’m here for the men who actually want to have their baby,” Magers said after he filed a lawsuit last month in Madison County against the abortion clinic, their employees and the pharmaceutical company that makes the medication used to abort of his child.
Magers said he pleaded with his girlfriend not to end the life of his unborn child because he believes “every child from conception is a baby and deserves to live.”
“I just tried to plead with her and plead with her and just talk to her about it and see what I could do. But in the end, there was nothing I could do to change her mind,” Magers said.
