Alabama Supreme Court Opinion Rules that “Child” Includes “Unborn Child”
Description: Friday, in an 8-1 decision authored by Justice Tom Parker, the Alabama Supreme Court held that the word “child” in Alabama’s chemical-endangerment statute applies to the born and unborn. This decision follows a similar one handed down last year by the Alabama Supreme Court in Ankrom v. State, where Alabama’s highest court also ruled that the word “child” includes the “unborn child.” We talk to attorney Clarke Forsythe from Americans United for life about the impact of this ruling.
