As I might have mentioned, before I'm writing a slave fic and well, it's set in this weird AU, where parents are allowed to sell their children, because kids are supposed to pay back a debt of being raised before they are free...

Long story and so on and so on...

But I wanted to center the rationalization for this on some bits in the bible. Now I've always sucked at memorizing bible quotes, but if I well remember, there's at least one bit where it says that a father is allowed to sell his daughter or something?

Anyone know where to find this quote. Or even better, know what this quote is?
(I know that there's at least a bit in the West Wing where president Bartlet uses this bit to make a point.)
