Alabama Attorney General Candidate: Those Who Murder Unborn Should Be ‘Prosecuted to Fullest Extent of Law’

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — A candidate for the attorney general of Alabama outlined in a recent online video that he believes that those who murder unborn children should be “prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

Sam McLure, the founder of The Adoption Law Firm, which seeks to place orphaned children in loving homes, made the declaration outside of Reproductive Health Services in the state capital of Montgomery.

“Since 1973, the federal government has said to the states that you can’t protect children from murder. We’re going to tie your hands,” he lamented. “And today, under the protection of law, you’ve got places like this in Montgomery, Alabama, just a few blocks from the governor’s mansion.”

McLure said abortion facilities deceive young couples into thinking that murdering their child is the answer, when that child could instead be safely placed for adoption.

“Somebody’s profiting from killing babies here today, on average about $500 per child,” he noted. “[But] a safer procedure can happen. Adoptive parents are waiting in line to adopt children.”

McLure, who is a registered Republican, then declared that those who kill children must be prosecuted.

“We need an attorney general that will prosecute places like this to the fullest extent of the law,” he said. “People that profit from killing children need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

“I’m asking you to vote for me for Alabama attorney general because I want to eradicate places like this,” McLure continued. “It’s intolerable that places like this still operate in Alabama.”

McLure also posted a photograph of the abortionist at the facility to his Facebook page, writing on Sept. 2, “This woman killed babies on Friday in Montgomery. Can anyone publicly defend why she should not be prosecuted for murder?”

Last month, McLure spoke at a pro-life rally in Tuscaloosa, during which he and others were continually drowned out by abortion supporters who loudly chanted sayings about “women’s rights,” “back alleys” and “not the Church, not the state, women must decide their fate.”

“We need to put people in office at all levels of government who will fight for children in the womb,” he said. “If you were a child in the womb and you saw a scalpel coming for you, what would you want the attorney general of Alabama to do? What would you want an elected official at every level in Alabama to do? The answer is to do everything in their power to save you. The state of Alabama needs to rise up and speak for the weak.”

According to his biography, McLure and his wife are themselves adoptive parents, adopting their son Jacob out of the foster system in Hungary. His life’s work as an attorney has since been focused on being a voice for orphaned and abused children, and he has also helped to advocate for legislation pertaining to protecting the unborn, reforming foster care and ensuring religious liberty.

“Sam’s passion to protect children in foster care, children at risk of abortion, reform the criminal justice system, and prosecute greedy politicos can be summarized in four words: speak for the weak,” McLure’s biography reads.

He is additionally a supporter of “Ten Commandments Judge” Roy Moore, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat to replace Jeff Sessions.

      Are you serious right now? We are discussing public policy and law in a country that has the separation of Church and State as one of the cornerstones of our democracy. Nothing wrong with having ancient and non-relevant beliefs in today’s society, but please keep that to yourself and don’t force it down reasonable people’s throats.

      “To the fullest extinct of the religious law also…”
      This nation has only ONE law…The Constitution as interpreted by the Supreme Court.
      You want “religious law”… then move to a Muslim country that endorses Sharia Law.

        That sounds so much like the pedophile Ambulance Chaser you have to wonder….

        Edmund Lincoln Anderson (September 18, 1905 – February 28, 1977) was an American comedian and actor.

        Anderson got his start in show business as a teenager on the vaudeville circuit. In the early 1930s, he transitioned into films and radio. In 1937, he began his most famous role of Rochester van Jones, usually known simply as “Rochester”, the valet of Jack Benny, on his radio show The Jack Benny Program. Anderson became the first Black American to have a regular role on a nationwide radio program. When the series moved to television, Anderson continued in the role until the series’ end in 1965.

    Gutsy. The left & PP’s worst nightmare. God give him favor before the voters.

    Maybe he should volunteer himself to do something about Alabama having the most HOMELESS CHILDREN PER CAPITA IN ALL OF USA. He goes on to rail about the injustice of “killing unborn children” while being mum about the near complete lack of sex education in schools which has lead to an explosion of teen pregnancies and poverty throughout the state. Its easy to sit on a high horse and preach from a place far removed from reality, but people need to look at the real issues instead of having their heads up their collective rear ends.

    • 0pus

      Sounds like you’re describing yourself, dude.

    • Ken Faivor

      I don’t think sex education is the problem. It doesn’t take long for kids to learn where babies come from and why. And it doesn’t take but one night for a parent to explain it to them. It’s lack of self control and morality, that is the problem.

    Only in Alabama (or Mississippi) would a lawyer running for Attorney General not know that “the fullest extent of the law” for prosecuting doctors performing abortions is …well… no prosecution at all. The Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade in 1973 made that abundantly clear, and it has been upheld and reaffirmed for over 40 yrs.

    Yep..this guy is a true wizard of jurisprudence. Alas, given Alabama’s collective IQ, lack of education, and disdain for the law, this will be utterly lost on them.

    • BillFortenberry

      Actually, the Alabama Supreme Court declared in Stinnett v. Kennedy that an abortionist could be lawfully charged with and tried for the wrongful death of any child killed through an abortion.

      • james blue

        No it didn’t.

        The case was medical malpractice suit where the obstetrician incorrectly diagnosed an ectopic pregnancy when a woman with a history of ectopic pregnancies and miscarriages was suspected to be in the process of another miscarriage. All the ruling declared is that such malpractice suits could be brought against doctors even when the fetus hasn’t reached viability. It most certainly doesn’t say a doctor can be charged for performing a legal abortion.

  • Fang

    When SCOTUS handed down the tragic Roe V Wade decision, two of the justices – White and Rehnquist – dissented. White wrote that the decision was clearly “investing mothers and doctors with the constitutionally protected right to exterminate.” He was stating the painfully obvious. Whereas the 7 justices claimed to base their ruling on the “right to privacy,” White saw more clearly what was going on: women and doctors were being given the power to legally exterminate other human beings.

    • dromedaryhump

      more importantly..women were given the power over their own bodies and reproductive system, irrespective of what religious fanatic men would have them do.

      • Ken Faivor

        Keep their legs closed…….And men keep it zipped.

      • Amos Moses – He>i

        “the power over their own bodies and reproductive system” is to keep it in their pants …………….

      • So if I tell you that it is a fact that abortion is the murder of a baby then you call me a religious fanatic? What about atheist that believe abortion is the murder of a baby?

  • I think I like this guy.
