"Women who were reputed to be believers began to take drugs to render
themselves sterile, and to bind themselves tightly so as to expel what was being
conceived, since they would not, on account of relatives and excess wealth, want
to have a child by a slave or by any insignificant person. See, then, into what
great impiety that lawless one has proceeded, by teaching adultery and murder at
the same time!" (Refutation of All Heresies [A.D. 228]).
