State Court Recognizes Unborn Children as People

Source: John-Henry Westen, "Alabama Supreme Court: ‘unborn children are persons with rights that should be protected by law’," Life Site News, 11 January 2013.

"The ruling states, “The decision of this Court today is in keeping with the widespread legal recognition that unborn children are persons with rights that should be protected by law.” “Today,” the court added, “the only major area in which unborn children are denied legal protection is abortion, and that denial is only because of the dictates of Roe. ... Furthermore, the decision in the present cases is consistent with the Declaration of Rights in the Alabama Constitution, which states that ‘all men are equally free and independent; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’”"

People want to forget that God stands opposed to all who destroy the innocent. "They even sacrificed their sons And their daughters to demons, And shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and daughters, Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; And the land was polluted with blood. Thus they were defiled by their own works, And played the harlot by their own deeds. Therefore the wrath of the LORD was kindled against His people, So that He abhorred His own inheritance" (Psalms 106:37-40).

This ruling is a step back in the right direction where innocent children's lives are valued whether born or unborn.
