Here is a story that I just love. It involves so many wonderful learning issues, including human stupidity, natural selection, repeated unplanned pregnancy / irresponsibility, distrust with Western medicine, alternative medicine, and my personal favorite - the immediate lawsuit filing after a loved one's death. This story is so good, I just wanted to share it with everyone.
(In doing some research in toxicology, I found this article about a herbal substance known as pennyroyal. It is found in most herbal stores and used in pennyroyal tea. Funny, since it causes abortions and severe liver and renal failure with death.)
