    LOLOL! But it's early. Remember many states have waiting periods.

    Here's kind of the thing. Because those fetuses were immortal, eating them didn't kill them.

    The Romans considered the Jews nuts because they went around stoning people for having sex, picking up sticks on the sabbath and having a bunch of crazy rules about eating things.

    wrong again----the romans were big time executioners of unfaithful women -----and fathers could LEGALLY kill their
    daughters for ANY REASON AT ALL. There is no history AT ALL of execution of adulterers THRUOUT THE ENTIRE
    TIME OF THE SECOND TEMPLE era-----and, in fact, jewish
    jurisprudence does not provide for execution for that offense---just divorce (gee you are dim) Picking up sticks on Saturday was NEVER A JUDICIAL CAPITAL OFFENSE---
    it is stated in the torah as an offense left to "heaven"-----
    if you wish to read the bible---learn Hebrew. It is true that the
    romans despised washing their hands and really liked pork

    Not really. In fact, the only case I can recall is when Claudius had his wife executed, and that bitch was trying to stage a coup.

    Really, so you are saying this story was made up?

    8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
    8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
    8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
    8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
    8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

    Um, no, they weren't. The Romans had civil divorce to deal with such matters.

    wrong again------in roman law the "PATER FAMILIAS" got to kill the man who screwed his wife------in fact, VIA TORTURE.
    Of course it was a matter of wealth and social status--------sheeeesh ---try to learn something
