" A fetus is considered viable or not BEFORE birth."
"viability of a fetus isn't something that needs to be "reached" AFTER being born"
Doc and I discussed this a while back. I offered a hypothetical "artificial womb", as a future medical technology.
Given the hypothetical...
My understanding is that every fetus would be considered "viable", as soon as it developed from embryo to fetus, rendering no need to make that determination before birth.
I think that is ridiculous because essentially the word "viable" becomes meaningless in the scheme of current debate.
Tho, it fits the definition.
The fetus absolutely would not be considered viable without this ALS (artifical womb), and even with this ALS it would not meet what we consider viable, today ( a womb is a womb is a womb).
Does that help?
(I know, I know .. ad homs, right?)

No, it's ridiculous because it's a senseless hypothetical to begin with, and what's ridiculous in your hypothetical is that you're expecting viablity at 8 weeks. When it goes "from embryo to fetus".

You came up with a senseless hypothetical that you expect others to make sense of, which is stupid.

Viability is about a determition made at a certain gestational point as to the potential of a fetus surviving outside of the womb. A determination made while that human life is in the womb, still a fetus, and not a newborn infant. Katie and some other PC are arguing vaibility of a newborn, and newborns "reaching" viability. The premise in their arguments about viability is wrong to begin with. They will never be right in the argument of viability i an abortion discussion as long as they argue viability as being about a born infant, when it's about a fetus in utero.

Your silly hypothetical is immaterial.

With ALS, per Doc.

The point at which a fetus is "viable" has changed, IF one considers medical technology today as opposed 30 years ago.

Medical technology may one day include an artifical womb.

So, your ad homs aside, when is a fetus viable?

No fear "lilrabbitfoofoo". Although most PL define the beginning of life at conception, an "embryo" that is conceived, studied, and frozen in the very first stages of development, in a test tube and not the womb, would never meet the legal or scientific definition of "viable". Now considering that I am just one of 320+ million people in our country, here's where the nuance comes in on my opinion. That circumstance is different then an embryo that begins it's conception in the womb as a result of mans natural connection with women. Isn't that just crazy? Even crazier is I believe that unless the mothers very life is in jeopardy from the developing fetus that to abort the baby is not an option. Now this is the craziest of them all "lilrabbitfoofoo", I'm sorry, but that name alone makes it difficult to take anything you say seriously. Just saying it out loud paints the most ridiculous mental image. My apologies, I digress. In the case of rape and incest, that better happen in the first trimester, with the abortion being considered murder legally and charges filed against the rapist for that death.

You didn't answer the question. You said abortion was "killing a baby". So, do you equate disposal of a frozen embryo with "killing a baby"? Viability is irrelevant to this question.

She copies my words "physician determines fetus is viable" but doesn't understand what these mean as she rides my a$$ and demands I prove what I am saying or bow down to her highness. Even worse, when coming up behind her buddy Doc, she doesn't understand what he's saying (although I'm sure she's clicking those icons in his favor).

Didja see where she told me to prove Doc is PC? How crazy is that? Doc can confirm or deny himself. He's always claimed he's PC, though I see him as PL holding exceptions for life of woman.

Most "PL" on THIS forum, where the discussion is happening, claim that 'its a baby' from conception. Thus the question:

Do you believe disposing of a frozen embryo is also "killing a baby"?

Yes dear, we know you dont like my name. That's YOUR "tough shit" moment and irrelevant to the topic.

Carry on.

I have. More than once. About a year ago when claiming childbirth is a process, that the brain doesn't instantly wake up upon birth no matter how alert your newborn seems. Dig for it yourself. You argued it then, why should I do your work when you'll be less appreciative of it now?

Stop you idiotic, aggressive demanding of others. Google works as well for you as it does for me. Just look up the words in Merriam medical to understand the definitions of the chemical makeup of the amniotic fluid and what these do physiologically.

Come back to the table when you can be more adult. It'd be appreciated.

LilLynne is ignoring Doc's argument.

His entire point is that if a physician determines ALS will give an infant any chance at survival whatsoever, then by defintion, it is viable.

Hence, my hypothetical artificial womb.

Her argument is that if an artificial womb were needed, the fetus isn't viable, as it wouldn't be viable in a natural womb.

Which is more along the lines of what I think.
