It's not as simple as who tends to what, like the difference between a goatherd and shepherd. Both kinds of professionals treat people with problems that vary widely by degree and type, from mild anxiety to schizophrenia. Both can practice psychotherapy, and both can do research.

The short answer is, psychiatrists are medical doctors and psychologists are not. The suffix "-iatry" means "medical treatment," and "-logy" means "science" or "theory." So psychiatry is the medical treatment of the psyche, and psychology is the science of the psyche.
==========
Both join forces with the powerful to manipulate the public to conform to keeping those in power comfortable and safe while profiting themselves. Medical doctors are not far behind. Once you allow insurance you open the bag to all sorts of abuse.

Regardless, abortion is (and will remain) legal.

When you copy someone else's words, by the way, citation is necessary - because plagiarism IS illegal.

I have no problem with abortion or capital punishment or withholding food and water from those that do not work for it. What I am against is forcing other people to provide for it.

It is not illegal to copy works that are not copyrighted.

Plagiarism is not a crime per se but in academia and industry it is a serious moral offence, and cases of plagiarism can constitute copyright infringement.

Morals are a personal issue and not universial.

Anon, you obviously just love to pontificate. I'll leave you to converse with yourself. You're not interested in an exchange of different ideas. Have fun, friend.

I am against forcing 'other people'(including me) to pay for dirty little wars, nation-building, and the propping up of corporate / financial institutions..........but you can see how much our government cares about my feelings in this regard. Why should it care any more about yours?

You should not care about my feelings. I will defend my property with my life. I will not let he government take it by proxy. It is called freedom and liberty wort fighting for.

The government does not enforce the laws so why obey them when they take what is does not belong to them. I will pay for what I use and not for other people's negligence.

Researchers reported Tuesday that they have linked 180,000 obesity-related deaths worldwide to sugary drinks, including about 25,000 adult Americans.
Of the deaths in 2010 linked to drinking sugar-sweetened soft drinks, fruit juice or sports beverages, 132 000 were from diabetes, 44 000 from cardiovascular disease and 6,000 from cancer.
Why pay for people that refuse to take good care of their health?
Insurance is a scam so people can act irresponsible.
The same for birth control supplied by the taxpayer. If people want to have sex let they work for it.

Last week it was reported that the National Institutes of Health had awarded approximately $1.5 million in grants to study how obesity and sexual orientation correlate — particularly why lesbians are more likely to be overweight than gay men. Apparently it was considered an issue of “high public-health significance.”

National Institutes of Health have awarded roughly $2.7 million to study why lesbians are more prone to “hazardous drinking” as part of a separate study, at a different institution

The concept that life begins at conception is a religious belief. It most certainly is not scientific.
Again,'conception' is not a good word for this debate, as it means both fertilization AND implantation. So, one doesn't know whether what is meant is when the sperm fertilizes the ovum, or when the blastocyst implants in the uterus. It would be better to just say 'fertilization', or 'implantation'. Medically, a pregnancy doesn't begin until implantation, and when it is defined as beginning at 'conception', that is what is meant.
No, that's not a better way of putting it, because it is just as incorrect. An embryo begins at fertilization, life was present prior to that point.
All DNA means is that it's human. It is not separate. If it was, it wouldn't need to be gestated for 40 weeks.
If it's alive, it's a life. However, there is a qualitative difference between being alive, being a life, and LIVING a life. A fertilized egg is in no way a person.
Embryo is what we call people when their life begains, after that we call people fetus, after that we call people children, after that we call people adolescents, after that we call people adults. What you choose to call something in no way affects what it is. Your perpetual inundation of twisted hateful lies and half truths are a blight upon humanity.

As an alien species stowing away on this planet, you aren't recognized as 'life' either.

I expect that's why you are so adamant for zygotes to have rights...I mean, hey, if we don't even give our OWN species rights before birth, why, we'll NEVER give your species rights whatsoever.

Right?

People are born.
Potential people are...not people yet.

Neither is a 'zef'.

Zygote isn't a species. Only humans have human rights. Since human rights are inherent, humans have rights no matter how young they might be. Your crass ageist bigotry is vulgar and obtuse. Your vile ageist slurs are offensive and insulting.

Being fat is a personal choice. If you do not have self control you can find it almost impossible be loved. Sex is not love.

What I am against is forcing other people to provide for it.
So what you are saying is that you would be against a poor woman being provided a small amount for clinically safe termination BUT you are ok with forcing her to have the child and have the taxpayers raise it for TENS of thousands of dollars with welfare,WIC,food stamps,free lunches,and public housing and all the other freebies that YOU entitled them to when you denied her decision to terminate. You can't see the whole picture with mule blinders on!

It would be better if there were more widespread usage of birth control and the MAP but there are those among us who are against that because in their feeble little minds they believe providing birth control is giving the green light for sex. Prevent it before it happens but if a pregnacy occurs,that decision to terminate is up to the mother,not you,not me,not those glassy eyed freaks that hang around the PP clinics.
