Joe Biden was red with rage after the Alabama Supreme Court made this pro-life ruling

The fight to protect innocent human life is now being waged in states across the country.

And while the radical pro-abortion lobby is doing all they can to promote murder, there are many pro-life successes.

That’s why Joe Biden was red with rage after the Alabama Supreme Court made this pro-life ruling.

In a lopsided 8-1 decision, the Alabama Supreme Court has ruled that frozen embryos are children subject to protection under state law. 

A person’s a person no matter how small

While a huge victory for pro-life forces, the decisive 8-1 ruling by Alabama’s High Court was actually in response to a lawsuit filed by three in-vitro fertilization (IVF) couples whose embryos were destroyed in 2020. 

The high court’s ruling reversed a lower court’s ruling that had initially dismissed the complaint. 

Alabama has a “Wrongful Death of a Minor Act” which explicitly and correctly applies to unborn children.

The justices ruled that the law applies to embryos regardless of whether they are in the mother’s body at the time of their destruction. 

The high court wrote in its decision: “The ordinary meaning of ‘child’ includes children who have not yet been born.” 

“Here, the text of the Wrongful Death of a Minor Act is sweeping and unqualified. It applies to all children, born and unborn, without limitation. It is not the role of this Court to craft a new limitation based on our own view of what is or is not wise public policy,” Justice Jay Mitchell wrote on behalf of the majority.

“That is especially true where, as here, the People of this State have adopted a Constitutional amendment directly aimed at stopping courts from excluding ‘unborn life’ from legal protection,” Mitchell continued. 

In a separate concurrence, Alabama Chief Justice Tom Parker wrote: “A good judge follows the Constitution instead of policy, except when the Constitution itself commands the judge to follow a certain policy. In these cases, that means upholding the sanctity of unborn life, including unborn life that exists outside the womb.”

“Our state Constitution contains the following declaration of public policy: ‘This state acknowledges, declares, and affirms that it is the public policy of this state to recognize and support the sanctity of unborn life and the rights of unborn children, including the right to life,” Parker continued. 

Justice Greg Cook, the lone dissenting justice, argued that the ruling could end IVF treatment in Alabama and that it was not the court’s place to amend the current 1872 state law. 

But Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver applauded the Alabama Supreme Court’s ruling. 

“Every unborn life is a human being. Every human life begins as an embryo, and now the Alabama Supreme Court has upheld the decision of its citizenry that every unborn life should be protected, no matter their stage or location,” Staver said in a statement. “This important ruling has far-reaching implications.”

Alabama ruling could affect Florida abortion amendment debate

Now, using the Alabama Supreme Court’s ruling as precedent, Liberty Counsel has announced it has filed a supplemental authority with the Florida Supreme Court regarding a proposed pro-abortion amendment to Florida’s Constitution. 

Currently, the Florida Constitution protects the rights of a “natural person.”

During oral arguments on February 7, Florida Chief Justice Carlos Muñiz asked attorneys on both sides of the abortion issue if the ballot summary should apprise voters of how the proposed abortion amendment could impact the Constitution if its definition of “natural person” also included the unborn. 

And Liberty Counsel is using the Alabama high court’s latest ruling to argue that Florida’s Constitution, like Alabama’s, affirms “that an unborn child qualifies as a human life, a human being, and a person.”

Specifically, in responding to Chief Justice Muñiz’s question, Liberty Counsel argues Florida’s deceptive pro-abortion amendment proposal misleads voters by not explaining that it will take away a protected right to life for the unborn.

Staver said his law firm will argue Florida’s proposed amendment defies current Florida laws protecting the unborn.  

“Liberty Counsel is using this precedent to argue that Florida’s proposed deceptive and misleading abortion amendment violates Florida’s own laws that routinely recognize that an ‘unborn child’ has the legally protected rights of a person,” Staver said. 

He added, “Unborn life must be protected at every stage.”
