If God sent his "only begotten son" to "bear the sins of the world" and die on our behalf, why is it necessary that "we have all had to suffer for what they did to Jesus?"

Doesn't that "negate" his "sacrifice?"

So, under what authority do you make the statement that "[t]here is nothing that exists on this earth that would ever validate Bitter's patently ridiculous statement[;]"
The authority of logic and common sense.
your contention that "the basic premise [is] that a physician must first conclude that an infant possesses the minimal basic lung function to survive before he applies medical assistance[?]"
And you disagree with this ? What physician would conclude that an infant could not possibly benefit from medical assistance....and then apply medical assistance ?
Are you a physician, Doc?
Nope. Are you an attorney ?(Rhetorical)
If not; who are you to say what is the "minimal basic lung function to survive[,]" or that such needs to be reached "before [a doctor] applies medical assistance[?]"
I've never said I would be the one to determine what constitutes basic minimal lung function. That would always be a determination made by a qualified physician.
Bitner's statement, paraphrased, of course, was that medical assistance can be administered to help a preemie reach viability.
Yep that's it. It sounds even more ridiculous when you say it.
And you say this statement is wrong,
It's not only wrong it's absurd. And not because I say it is.
ipso facto, when you don't have the qualification to make a judgment on that statement, especially given your own statement above.
One need not have the medical qualification to make the judgement that a physician would NOT apply medical assistance to an infant he deems to be NON VIABLE.
BTW, kudos to you! Thanks for taking my bait, hook line and sinker, and finding the post where I state that a preemie on medical assistance is already viable.
You challenged me and I stuck it where the sun don't shine. Suck it up and take it like a man. Bait my ass.
You've already agreed that the exact point of viability is unquantifiable,
It is. That's why the determination of viable/non viable will always be a subjective one made by a qualified physician on a case by case basis.
so in a manner of speaking, you've validated Bitner's statement.
Not even close. Bitter's statement can NEVER be validated. It is patently absurd. A physician ( not yours truly now ) will not apply medical assistance to an infant he has deemed NON VIABLE. If the physician ( not Doc D.) believes the infant can survive with medical assistance he will deem it viable and apply said assistance. Simple as that. By definition an infant cannot REACH viability with medical assistance because if it needs to REACH viability that means it is not yet viable. If it is not yet viable it cannot survive no matter WHAT medical assistance is applied.
This is basic stuff.

This is not a David & Goliath match up cara 'e culo. You can split hairs all you want, but bottom line, you're not an ObGyn, or a Pediatrician, despite that you play a "Doc" on Topix.
With that in mind, I'm going to amend my previous statement and say that a preemie on medical assistance is either already viable, or has been deemed potentially viable by someone that knows more about infants than you and me,
You should have stuck with your unamended version. It was closer to being accurate. There is no such thing as a "potentially viable" infant. A born infant is either viable ( with OR without medical assistance ) or it is not.
Only a fetus still in utero can be "potentially viable". A 10 week old fetus....as long as it remains in utero...is potentially viable.
or even my wife, since she's a Physiatrist, and not a Pediatrician. Neither Courts, nor dictionary publishers, interfere with how a doctor practices medicine, especially when he/she is acting in the scope of his/her medical training, judgment and/or experience.
So, when push comes to shove, who cares whether you, or me, or anyone else, calls a fetus non-viable. If the attending physician says otherwise, medical assistance will be administered. Fact is, however, you have expressly conceded to my position with regard to the lack of REQUIREMENT of medical assistance for viability to exist.
There was no point to concede. I've never considered medical assistance to be a requirement for viability. How stupid is that ? Who would ever consider an infant born at 36 weeks that needed no artificial support to survive...to be non viable ?
My position has always been that the need for medical assistance does not preclude a determination of viability.
Doc, if you think you've "won;" what have you won? The only thing you've managed to do is display a much higher, and misguided disposition, to go find a post to "prove" someone else wrong, where it doesn't matter; in an anonymous internet forum. As if such was some sort of overly coveted title.
Go on and enjoy yourself Doc. Be sure to get Sassy, or Lynne to cash your "chips" for you. You'll probably have enough to buy your son more sandbags and shutters.
I don't think I've won anything. But I have demonstrated that I am right. And for a guy who's essentially written friggin treatises on here in an attempt to prove he was right, I wouldn't make little of that. It comes off as supremely hypocritical.

Long Night Moon..."#2834 99"
That was post #283586 Yet again you prove to me that you're either really clueless or playing games. We went through this before and you were wrong then too. And HERE is my actual answer to your question...
LNM..."Point 1. It is not illegal to protest against laws or work to change laws. At that time obtaining or performing an abortion was illegal, but speaking against the abortion law was not illegal. Women at that time would know abortion was illegal, and so wouldn't be surprised when they couldn't obtain one. They would be within their rights to work at changing the law, but not actually getting an abortion, according to the law. Tell me this...if a woman got some sort of abortion prior to 1973 was she prosecuted for murder? Or just for breaking a law? Point 2. What IS the criteria for being considered alive? Does a z/e/f that is depending on another functioning body to be sustained alive according to the criteria? "There is not an unequivocal definition of life so to be considered alive an organism must meet all or at least most of the following criteria." "1. Maintenance of homeostasis or regulation of the internal environment of the cell. 2. Organization, being composed of one or more of the basic unit of life the cell. 3. Posses a metabolism, the ability to convert both chemicals and energy into cell components. Anabolism (cell growth) vs catabolsim ( organic matter decay). 4. Growth maintenance of a higher rate of Anabolism than catabolism. Increasing the size of many of its parts. 5. Adaptation the ability to change over time in response to stimuli in the organisms environment. 6.Response to stimuli 7. Reproduction, the ability of that organism to produce new organisms of the same type." (link deleted)
The question is not "if" a z/e/f is alive, but WHEN the z/e/f fits the criteria for being considered alive. But again the criteria is "is not an unequivocal definition of life". To render a decision on RvW the SC would have to answer the question of when life begins so they answered it, but that doesn't mean they are right. The SC is not infallible." And the link to my post... And it indicates #283499...as I stated in my other post. Now I suppose you'll convenient miss THIS post too. How many more times do I have to make you look like a fool, Doc? I've answered your questions. YOUR "MO" is to pretend to not see my posts and then lie about it.

You totally miss the point. The issue was never the legality of working within the law to change a law. The issue was you saying that all you are doing is defending a woman's right to choose within the law. I found that to be a convenient statement since you agree with the current law. So I asked you if you would say the same thing pre -1973. You still haven't answered. This babbling about the legality of working to change laws is not an answer to my specific question.
Tell me this...if a woman got some sort of abortion prior to 1973 was she prosecuted for murder? Or just for breaking a law?
I don't know. I was just a little shaver back then. You tell me.
And keep in mind that I've never said abortion should or would ever be considered murder.
Point 2. What IS the criteria for being considered alive? Does a z/e/f that is depending on another functioning body to be sustained alive according to the criteria? "There is not an unequivocal definition of life so to be considered alive an organism must meet all or at least most of the following criteria." "1.

What does any of this babble have to do with my specific question about RvW ? What does any of this have to do with the fact that a fetus is alive and is a developing human life....regardless of whether it is being sustained by another ? This is indisputable scientific fact.

No they did NOT answer it. That is the point. They specifically stated in their decision that they "need not determine the difficult question of when life begins." And no where in their decision do they say anything to indicate that they've determined when life actually begins.
But yet they rendered a decision that determined when life did NOT exist...and that was pre-viability. Because they affirmed the right to abort without restriction prior to that point. They would not have been able to do that without implicitly agreeing that life did not exist at that point. They contradicted themselves.
but that doesn't mean they are right. The SC is not infallible."
I'm not asking the SC to be infallible....just not to be hypocritical. Don't say there is no need and you are not going to determine when life begins, and then render a decision that does just that.

Abortion is an issue decided individually by states. The federal umbrella covering abortion is during the first twelve weeks of pregnancy. No questions asked, no reasons needed to terminate an unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy. As it should be.
You just contradicted yourself Katie, you said that abortion is an issue decided individually by states, but only as long as they adhere to the guidelines set by the federal government/SCOTUS decisions. So it's not decided by states as the poster suggested it should be, right?
Katie wrote:
Since 98% of all annual abortions are performed during this time, the PLM needs to stop sucking the goop off that spoon and start living in reality.
So, again, you are saying that 98% of all abortions are protected by the federal government/SCOTUS decisions? I believe the poster said that abortions should be regulated by states and you argued that they are.
Katie wrote:
Roe v Wade also protects women from forced abortion.
Katie, I've seen you say this before, but before Roe v Wade abortion was illegal, in most cases, so the government wasnt looking to abort fetuses. I may be wrong on this and am honestly asking to learn something about it here. Can you provide some examples of where the government forced a women to have an abortion prior to R v W, and where Roe v Wade specifically addressed this issue?

You're probably too young, but I remember a time in the late 60s and early 70s when girls who got pregnant - several who were in my class - had to drop out of school and hope the guy would marry her - which, surprisingly, many did back then - or get enough money to fly to New York for an abortion which was inconvenient and attached with a sense of shame.
The Supreme Court's ruling in Roe v Wade was very narrow and restrictive when it came to abortion. But once Pandora's box is opened, it usually flies wide open. That's where we are now.
Ironically, the woman represented as Roe is now a pro-life activist.
Abortion should be an issue for each state to decide and should still be inconvenient and attached with a sense of shame.
Unfortunately, it has become a war cry for the empowerment of women. It's time they - and we - humbled ourselves instead.
Awwwwwww, it's sooooo tough when anti-choice guys CAN'T dictate a woman's sexual and reproductive choices anymore, isn't it. TOO BAD.

The fact remains that abortion IS an option for women now, rather than being FORCED to stay pregnant and give birth. Obviously you long for those dark days of "shame" for women to return. Tough luck on THAT score too.

I thought it has always been an option.

You do know ocean, if a guy wanted to force a woman to do anything, he could.
Vica versa as well.
But it would be rape and kidnapping, which is what you seem to think went on before rvw.

Which, I've never understood why someone would ever want someone,who didn't want them?
