    because it is public domain.

    I took your advice and see that "her fruit depart" is now interpreted as a safe live birth.

    What is so gob smacking about this is the fundamentalist position that God knows all things, created us, created language, gave us the Bible as His word... but is just not a very good writer so we have to help him out when He doesn't express himself clearly.

    Our reason is quite satisfied ... if we can find a few arguments that will do to recite in case our credulity is criticized... Our faith is faith in someone else's faith, and in the greatest matters this is most the case. - William James

        The pharmacopoeia of plants known to have abortive effects is extensive...but all of them are at least somewhat dangerous.

        And NONE of them should be self-administered.

        If it's
        Not your body,
        Then it's
        Not your choice
        And it's
        None of your damn business!
