I find it difficult to believe that anyone capable of typing on a keyboard with so few spelling mistakes yet be so stupid as to not understand such a simple concept.<quoted text>
If the premature child died every time, that would simply mean that the killer of the child would also die every time. Thats easy to understand. But Im still not convinced that it was even considered a deliberate attack on the child. If that is the case, then there would be no penalty for the childs death, but only for the deliberate attack on the woman. After all, the attacker may not have even known that the woman was pregnant.
The Bible says what it says, but it also often seems to say what people want it to say.
"No mischief ensues". The fetus is dead, a rotting lump of goo on the desert, but no mischief has ensued. That can only mean one thing, that the fetus is not considered a person.
