Yet, there’s nothing about abortion.
I do wish this parent luck.
It is the correct stand.
But it sounds like, in Utah, it is also a brave stand.
Any smut in the Book of Mormon?
This needs to be turned into a template that can be populated with your own State/County/City/School District law/rule references and turned in.
There’s maybe one bit that gives instructions for an abortion potion. It’s labelled as a way of testing if your woman has been unfaithful, but the “proof” is that her pregnancy is terminated.
The 12-foot ladder didn’t work for me today, but going into reader mode worked, in case anyone else wanted to read just one article from this newspaper.
Exodus 21:22 somewhat does. A man accidentally punches a pregnant woman (under the scenario that two men were fighting) and she miscarries, but no other harm is done, then he pays a fine. It’s treated as a loss of property.
If the mother dies, then it’s a capital crime.
I’m pretty sure there are references to bigamy (though in Utah, that’s probably not considered pornographic).

Here you go:
The boomerangs have been hitting the Xtianists in their thick skills lately.
Was gonna pop in here to mention this, you got there first
This is the way.
Of course, the thing is, all these book bannings aren’t about “protecting the children,” they’re about protecting the patriarchal, white-supremacist order. So the Bible is obviously exempt from the intentions of the book banners. Which means court cases like this a) uncover the dishonesty of the claims, but also b) reveal whether the system will accede to the intent of the book banners, or be forced to accept the laws as written. History shows there are plenty of conservative judges who are willing to go along with the intent, regardless of what kind of tortured (non-) logic is required to do so.
Kind of tends to happen when their stated goals for a law are a complete misrepresentation of what they actually want it to do. (The stated goal being protecting children from inappropriate content, the actual goal being protecting conservative culture from being exposed to particular ideas.)
In keeping with the spirit of the times:
The Bible is a poor influence on children for a variety of reasons. Firstly, its language and subject matter are often too adult for children to fully understand. The Bible often contains references to violence and sex, which are inappropriate for young minds. In addition, the Bible often contains morals that children may not have the capacity to comprehend, such as when it calls for capital punishment for those who disobey God’s laws.
Furthermore, the Bible has historically been used to justify many horrendous crimes, such as the Inquisition and the Crusades. This is because some people have used the Bible to justify their actions, which can lead to children being confused as to what is right and what is wrong. For example, those who believe in the Bible are taught that it is acceptable to wage war against their enemies, yet those who oppose this war are also taught that they are against God.

I would say that this is a textbook case of malicious compliance. Certainly FAAFO.
They will probably dismiss the request and keep the Bible in libraries. I bet they’ll make an apology for the book and still find some way to label the father as frivolous.
If anything that is an example of how the Bible isn’t too harsh on terminations of pregnancy.
Bible thumpers also love to quote Jeremiah 1:5’s “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you” as an argument against abortion completely ignoring the context that this statement is specifically directed at Jeremiah, not as a general statement.
Plus, that’s just god humblebragging about being able to see into the future.
