The three posts listed below deal with the case law described in Deuteronomy 25:11-12:
If men get into a fight with one another, and the wife of one intervenes to rescue her husband from the grip of his opponent by reaching out and seizing his genitals, you shall cut off her hand; show no pity.
This law in Deuteronomy deals with the threat to man’s ability to father children and the penalty to a woman who defends her husband by grabbing a man’s genital.
