Found this article on facebook
"Recipes for herbal potions including pennyroyal, savin and other plants capable of “bringing on the menses” were common in home medical guides of the period."
Was the pun intended?
I think one would do well to look at the second comment after the article.
Mistletoe tea was used to abort/miscarry fetuses also. If it was too strong it could kill the adult also. Supposedly prostitutes back in the 18th, 19th centuries knew the correct proportions to make the tea.
"Fetuses" are unborn children.
Yes, they are. They are also "fetuses." There's nothing incorrect about saying this.
Its in the motivation. Fetus is a scientific term.
When people use it to avoid saying baby - well thats another story - aborting a fetus doesn't sound as bad as aborting a baby!
They are children, human beings, not some blob called fetuses. It is a medical term used to dehumanize them. And yes there is something very wrong with it.
Something I read recently.....during the Roman Empire, when people were to be executed, the policy was NOT to slaughter a pregnant woman until after the birth of her baby.....I have often found Roman civilisation rather barbaric from where I stand, but hey....I found that quite profound!:thumbs:
maybe they induce birth one way or the other ? just kidding.
