First!!hahaa, wow, this one it's really hard!! oh Hilary!! poor of you..
A triumph of a post!
hahahaha! How controversial!
There must be a tiny portion of your brain that is slightly different from our runofthemill brains. You think up these extraordinary items and we get it, but couldn't think it. I'm not making any sense here, but I hope, I think you just might understand.Brilliant.
wouldn't it be "an herbal abortion"
HIlary will give the drink to Mother. No new babies here!

That wouldn't be an herbal abortion. You would need tansy, not parsley.
The Brits pronounce the "h" in herbal so "a herbal abortion" would be correct for them.American English doesn't pronounce the "h", so for USA it would be "an herbal".
If you want to use a real example of something that could cause an herbal abortion, you could use pennyroyal tea with mugwort (or a tablespoon of brewer's yeast).
Not that pineapple and parsley couldn't be used in that situation, but parsley is very mild, and the combination would probably not work well.
Also, if you wanted to avoid the a/an argument, you could use the word "abortifacient" instead of herbal abortion.
Abortifacient is my new favourite word. Thanks for the tips; I'll pass them on to Hilary.
