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.)

It's never a good thing when someone dies for no reason, especially one so young, but like you said, if the history of ignorance and lack of accountability fits . . . It's amazing when the pseudo-hippies think they know so much and are enlightened about the world just because they go to concerts-in-the-park and march for (insert oppressed org here) rights, but in reality truly know very little. Sad, really.
