My wife called me all excited and said “Sometimes I am really glad to be from ALABAMA even if that labels me a redneck hick.” It is a bone of contention for her that people assume that between the born-blonde mane atop her head and what she claims to only be a SLIGHT accent (like King Kong is slightly hairy) people assume she is an idiot. That is usually remedied by speaking with her for more than 5 minutes.
Her pride this day comes from the Alabama Supreme Court declaring UNANIMOUSLY that unborn babies not only have rights BUT that Justice Parker declared that LIFE begins at conception. (The decision is due to the case of Stinnett vs. Kennedy for wrongful death.)
You’re probably not going to hear about it on CBS,NBC or ABC. Fox News might mention it. CNN will probably only discuss it in the vain of the rednecks getting rowdy. BUT the fact is that it is HUGE news.
Roe vs Wade started because of one woman and could very well see its last days because of one. The question is which woman. Kimberly Stinnett or Dr. Karla G. Kennedy.
Kimberly Stinnett is a woman who was apparently wrongly administered a drug by Dr. Karla Kennedy that ended Stinnett’s baby’s life.
Now I don’t know Kimberly Stinnett but AL.com reports that she had prior miscarriages in 2005 and 2007 and a prior ectopic pregnancy in 2010. An ectopic pregnancy is when a fertilized egg implants outside the uterus.
Considering that history and the fact that Stinnett was again pregnant, I am assuming that she really WANTED a baby. I have a close family member that went through something similar. The struggle to have a baby is heartbreaking. It is compounded by the fact that some view a baby as a “ball of cells” or inconvenience to be destroyed. That is why women who suffer from miscarriages feel that their pain over losing a baby is diminished and even disregarded by Roe vs Wade, ardent supporters of Planned Parenthood and other Abortion Providers who throw away what they consider precious. Babies are life, and you can ask any woman who wants one desperately when they consider what they carry inside them a life and the answer will be a resounding “moment of conception”. Thankfully, even if the United States Supreme Court doesn’t see that the Alabama Supreme Court does and it is my sincere hope that ALL states and ALL people follow suit.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go join my wife for a resounding rendition of “Sweet Home Alabama”
