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.
