Nineteen-year-old Ryan Magers of Madison County, Alabama has been permitted by an Alabama judge to sue the abortion clinic that killed his unborn child.
Magers claims that his girlfriend received a medication abortion in 2017 though he vehemently protested the procedure and begged that she allow their child to live. The baby was at approximately six weeks gestation.
“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,” said Magers.
The teen explained that it was “like [his] whole world fell apart” when his girlfriend decided to terminate the pregnancy.
“Every child from conception is a baby and deserves to live,” he added. “I’m here for the men who actually want to have their baby.”
During last year’s midterms, Alabama’s “personhood law” was passed under Amendment 2 and requires that the state recognize rights of the unborn. Thus, in a remarkable ruling, presiding Judge Frank Barger ordered that the aborted child, “Baby Roe,” needs to be regarded as the plaintiff in the case.
