Judge Dismisses Father’s Lawsuit Against Alabama Abortion Facility That Killed His Unborn Child
By Heather Clark - Posted at Christian News Network:
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — A county circuit judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by an Alabama teenager who sued the abortion facility that killed his son or daughter despite his wishes that his girlfriend keep the baby.
“[T]he court finds that Plaintiff’s asserted claims for punitive money damages are not cognizable under Alabama law, including the Alabama Wrongful Death Act,” Madison County Circuit Judge Chris Comer wrote, according to AL.com.
Comer ruled that 19-year-old Ryan Magers didn’t show that Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives in Huntsville had broken any law in performing the abortion, nor did he show personal injury. He also concluded that federal and state law protects abortion facilities from such legal action.
The abortion facility had filed a motion for Comer to dismiss the case, arguing that the abortion was legal and it had done nothing wrong.
