And this news story I'm about to tell you, which has come straight out of Alabama, is about to ignite what I can feel is going to be a MASSIVE debate about foetal ownership... yep, it's gonna be a doozy.
This (below) is Ryan Magers. Now, Ryan has decided to go ahead and sue a clinic in Madison County, Alabama due to the fact it aborted his girlfriend's pregnancy without getting his consent beforehand... however, it does go a bit deeper than that.
It's actually been two whole year's since Magers' girlfriend got the procedure done however he has been fighting for his day in court so that all men in the future will be able to have a true legal precedent in order for them to keep their baby... even if their other half doesn't want to go through with it.
He told WAAY 31:
Ryan's girlfriend was apparently six weeks along in her pregnancy before she decided to take the two pills which would kick start her abortion.
Magers' lawyer, who goes by the name of J. Brent Helms, adds that Ryan was 100% prepared to step up to the plate and become an outstanding father to their baby.
While he is very clearly defending his client, as is his job, he does seem to recognize that if the court sides with them, it could have some rather far-reaching consequences; one of those being: what on earth happens if a female victim of rape has to give birth to a baby conceived with the rapist if he, in fact, wants to keep the child!?
