well, that and the treatment of the unborn as property. If the woman miscarried due to abuse or whatever stress aomeone put on her by another man, that man had to pay with property of a certain value to the husband.
So, putting a price on life. The fetus was given similar status to say, a slave or a nice herd of cattle lol. So... Just so they don't get ahead of themselves. It was a code of Law, so it's in Dueteronomy, Levitucus, or Exodus likely ;)
Sorry, i heard it firsthand from a Xian, but she didn't know the exact verse either.
23And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head.
24And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.

Leviticus 18:6 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the Lord. 7: The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.
Matthew 5:27-31-27:Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time,Thou shall not commit adultery.
28:but I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath commited adultery with her already in his heart. 29:and if the right eye offended thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. 30:and if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. 31:it hath been said, whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: 32:but I say unto you, that whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced commiteth adultery.
So basically, if you look at a woman, you should gouge out your eye and throw it away, because you have commited adultery. And anyone that marries a woman who has been divorced is also commiting adultery.
And if a woman have an issue, and her issue in her flesh be blood she shall be put apart seven days: and whosoever toucheth her shall be unclean until the even.
And everything that she lieth upon in her separation shall be unclean: everything also that she siteth upon shall be unclean.
And whosoever toucheth her bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
And whosoever toucheth anything she sat upon shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt, I am the Lord, your God.
