comment Premature birth contradicting science
Neither my fellow teacher nor I want to imply that any of the rabbis are wrong. I'm fine with letting the girls make up their own mind about that, and I have no room to comment since I have never in my life studied the things that they are studying. Besides, I don't personally view it that the rabbis were wrong, just maybe misinformed, and we discuss that society and technology as we know it have changed significantly over the years. From a scientific and non-religious standpoint, I think my coworker and I would be safest to simply leave it at "Technology has changed" perspective

Thank you all for your fantastic responses! It has really clarified for me what the girls were studying to bring about their questions, and I think it will help both myself and my fellow teacher formulate a good reply to our students--certainly in this case, but also in future cases if they arise.
