Ryan Magers of Madison County obtained attorney Brent Helms after his girlfriend, six weeks pregnant, terminated the pregnancy at the Alabama Women's Center. The aborton clinic is located in Huntsville.

Helms tells OneNewsNow that Ryan wanted his girlfriend to keep the baby and that the lawsuit, filed in state court, could be the first of its kind in Alabama.

"We're charging the responsible parties for the death of the baby," Helms says, "and that includes the Alabama Women's Center, the abortionist, the pharmaceutical company, and the reason is because they're profiting from the wrongful death of babies."

The lawsuit also alleges the defendants have restricted Magers' rights as a father.

The owner of Alabama Women's Center, Dalton Johnson, told TV News station WAAY 31 that a man can legally choose an abortion at the sixth week of pregnancy.

Magers told WAAY 31 that he believes "every child from conception is a baby and deserves to live."

The website American Pregnancy advises that an ultrasound might be able to detect the heartbeat by the sixth week, which is when the vital organs are beginning to develop.

"This case is about Ryan and how Ryan feels," says Helms. "He would have been the father of a child, and he was doing everything within his power to have that come about, and unfortunately because he has no say and because the baby has no say, he's left without a child."

The child would be approximately one year old today.
