Yesterday the Alabama Supreme Court upheld the conviction of a mother who endangered her unborn child by using illegal drugs during her pregnancy. Her conviction had been challenged on the grounds that the unborn baby "was not a child". The Alabama Supreme Court, in a 8-1 decision, stated otherwise. Chief Justice Roy Moore delivered a concurring opinion that cited natural law and the fact that human rights are granted by God, not governmental bodies. I send you to this link to review his opinion.
Let us pray that this groundwork will prove useful into restoring legal protections to the unborn child.
Pray for us, St. Ignatius
