A ruling from the Alabama Supreme Court has concluded that a reference in state law that prevents exposing children to dangerous chemicals also protects an unborn child.
While the decision itself is unrelated to abortion, in a court where at least one justice has advocated overturning Roe v. Wade the decision today in Ankrom v. State undoubtedly will be referenced again.
The case upheld the convictions of two women, Hope Ankrom of Coffee County and Amanda Kimbrough of Colbert County, who were prosecuted for using drugs during their pregnancies....
 Lo, children [are] an heritage of the LORD: [and] the fruit of the womb [is his] reward. (Psa 127:3)
 Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion us in the womb? (Job 31:15)
 But thou [art] he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope [when I was] upon my mother's breasts. (Psa 22:9)
 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.  I will praise thee; for I am fearfully [and] wonderfully made: marvellous [are] thy works; and [that] my soul knoweth right well.  My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, [and] curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.  Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all [my members] were written, [which] in continuance were fashioned, when [as yet there was] none of them. (Psa 139:13-16)
 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: (Luk 1:41)
Jeremiah 20:17 Because he did not kill me before birth, So that my mother would have been my grave, And her womb ever pregnant.
