Both names refer to Lady K'abel, who governed the Wak kingdom for her family, the empire-building Kan, or "Snake," dynasty, based in the Maya capital Calakmul in what is now Mexico.

Her tomb was recently excavated: the body inside was buried with various offerings, including ceramic vessels, jade jewelry, stone figurines, and, crucially, a small alabaster jar carved in the shape of a conch shell, out of which the carved head and arms of an old woman emerge.

Come back when you can write a sentence in English, or when you've evolved gills, whichever comes first.

It's not up to you to decide, Luke. It's up to the woman. That's what "choice" means. Now I'm exercising a choice of my own, which is to do something else. Goodnight.

Well, much as I've enjoyed this discussion, I'm logging off now to drink champagne, play music and read the new Stephen King. Isn't choice a marvellous thing?

I'm sure the unwanted babies who grew up in care, or were abused, or were the products of incest or rape have their own opinions on that.

Luke, there *are* limitations. That's why you can't get an abortion beyond a certain time.

Yes, Joel, I reject the Bible. And I don't decide anything. I acknowledge the right of the person concerned to make the decision for themselves. That's what "pro-choice" means.

Your opinion only matters on this if you're considering having an abortion. If you're not, then it's up to the person doing so to make the decision for themselves.

False analogy, I'm afraid. All those people were people, not just potential people. And many of them were denied their rights by the Church, which is still denying women their rights in Ireland today - though hopefully not any more.
