MacFarlane later clarified via e-mail, saying, "Clearly my sarcasm doesn't come across in print. I completely support whatever decision Fox makes. We were allowed to take a crack at this controversial story and that's enough for me."

Not much else was revealed about the episode, titled 'Partial Terms of Endearment,' except that it may still be released on DVD.

If it is not alive ,how does it form it's own blood?How does it "become' it's own entity? Who or what gives it this ability?
Jeremiah 1:4-6 (New King James Version)

The Prophet Is Called

4 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying:
5 " Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations."

Key word "before" and "formed". Denoting the living soul independant of the body designed by GOD! Think about THAT.

PS. Next time read the scriptures "within' the proper context. the plucking of the eye is referring to "sin" in our lives. Look that up,I think the word of God is a Little more authoritative than catholic dogma or any dogma.God bless you and keep you as you seek his truth.:)

no one is saying its not a living being. i think most people like me are just saying your bible shouldnt be used to make laws. you dont like abortions? fine. dont get one then. what about the millions of people who dont believe in your way of life your going to force them to conform to it anyway? what if you people woke up tomorrow and decided you dont like cheese does that mean i cant have anymore cheese because ur religion says its wrong? typical american ignorance.
