"I'm here for the men who actually want to have their baby," Magers said after he filed a lawsuit last month in Madison County against the abortion clinic, their employees and the pharmaceutical company that makes the medication used to abort of his child.
Magers had revealed that he pleaded with his girlfriend not to end the life of his unborn child. He believes that “every child from conception is a baby and deserves to live.”
"I just tried to plead with her and plead with her and just talk to her about it and see what I could do. But in the end, there was nothing I could do to change her mind," Magers said.
At the time of the abortion in February 2017, Magers was seeking legal counsel. The pro-life organization, Personhood Alliance, said that they helped Magers sue on behalf of his unborn child, and explained that the suit was brought to prevent profiting from abortion.
“In most states, wrongful death lawsuits can take into consideration medical bills, lost earning capacity, and other factors, but in Alabama, wrongful death lawsuits are meant exclusively to punish the defendant for their wrongful behavior and to deter similar conduct by others. This means that, if this case is successful, Alabama law could punish abortion clinics and pharmaceutical companies under the wrongful death law to prevent them from continuing to profit from the killing of pre-born children,” the organization explained.
