Every person who administers to any woman pregnant with a quick child,
or who prescribes for such woman, or advises or procures any such
woman to take any medicine, drug or substance whatever, or who uses or
employs any instrument or other means with intent thereby to destroy
such child, unless the same shall have been necessary to preserve the
life of such mother, is guilty in case the death of the child or of
the mother is thereby produced, of manslaughter in the first degree.
