State Supreme Court Ruling: Embryos Are Indeed Children

Another win!

The State Supreme Court stepped in and stated what so many of us know to be true, that embryos are children.

I’m sensing this will have a domino effect on other rulings.

Guess how Democrats view this ruling?

Go ahead, just guess.

Well, as we’ve viewed over the past many years, anything that has to do with the safety, well-being of children and babies causes them to lash out. “This is terrible for ‘Women’s health’!”

The Associated Press reports:

The Alabama Supreme Court has ruled that frozen embryos can be considered children under state law, a decision critics said could have sweeping implications for fertility treatment in the state.

The decision was issued in a pair of wrongful death cases brought by three couples who had frozen embryos destroyed in an accident at a fertility clinic. Justices, citing anti-abortion language in the Alabama Constitution, ruled that an 1872 state law allowing parents to sue over the death of a minor child “applies to all unborn children, regardless of their location.”

“Unborn children are ‘children’ … without exception based on developmental stage, physical location, or any other ancillary characteristics,” Justice Jay Mitchell wrote in Friday’s majority ruling by the all-Republican court.

Mitchell said the court had previously ruled that fetuses killed while a woman is pregnant are covered under Alabama’s Wrongful Death of a Minor Act and nothing excludes “extrauterine children from the Act’s coverage.”

“This ruling is stating that a fertilized egg, which is a clump of cells, is now a person. It really puts into question, the practice of IVF,” Barbara Collura, CEO of RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, told The Associated Press Tuesday. The group called the decision a “terrifying development for the 1-in-6 people impacted by infertility” who need in-vitro fertilization.

She said it raises questions for providers and patients, including if they can freeze future embryos created during fertility treatment or if patients could ever donate or destroy unused embryos.

Sean Tipton, a spokesman with the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, said at least one Alabama fertility clinic has been instructed by their affiliated hospital to pause IVF treatment in the immediate wake of the decision.

Dr. Paula Amato, president of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, said a decision to treat frozen fertilized egg as the legal equivalent of a child or gestating fetus could limit the availability of modern health care.

“By insisting that these very different biological entities are legally equivalent, the best state-of-the-art fertility care will be made unavailable to the people of Alabama. No health care provider will be willing to provide treatments if those treatments may lead to civil or criminal charges,” Amato said.

Some liberals are mega mad about this ruling. “Embryos are alive! They’re not babies!”

Tell that to these 3 children:

And here’s one of the angry libs.

Looks like we got a new nickname. ChristoFascist!

I wonder if she loves communism too?

Seeing as she’s Chinese and fascism is one of the main ideologies against communism.

Curious how any attempt to humanize a baby before the baby is born is met with such hostility from liberals.

Well, Lindy Li and the Dems better get used to this ‘hijack’. We’ve only just begun to reclaim this country back from these communist subversives.

Here’s another.

“It’s so horrifying! It’s the worst thing in the world!”
