Abortion is an incredibly touchy subject, especially these days. Even the slight mention of anything to do with the idea of abortion will evoke a severe amount of emotion, not to mention a horde of different perspectives.

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.

"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.

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:

"He doesn't know why she didn't want to go through with the pregnancy. He's not giving me a definitive answer to that question."

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.

"There could be a situation where a father has to give consent to an abortion, also, our Alabama legislature could carve out exceptions. It's almost too early to tell."

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!?

Well, I know how I feel about this one, but how about you? Let me know in the comments (but remember, be respectful of others opinions!) and don't forget to share this with your friends and family! x
