~"Viability of an already born infant is also about POTENTIAL, and when doctors see a potential for that born infant to survive with medical help..."
In a prior post, you said, and I quoted you ver batim:
"That's not the same as viability of a newborn infant, because the newborn infant is already ~outside of the womb~, so it would be about potential of the newborn infant to survive without medical help."
^^^These two statements are contradictory.^^^"~
The first was misspoken and I clarified, the word (without) was inadvertantly left out. The second statement states what I was saying. BOTH were about potential of a newborn infant to survive off ALS. Different from viability of a fetus being able to survive off natural life support/ the womb.
You can keep going but I know what I said and meant, because the viability of a fetus is one thing, the viability of an infant is another different thing.
Viable fetus: ability to survive off its natural life support,(the womb), with or without ALS once born.
Viable newborn infant: ability to survive off ALS.
Both is about POTENTIAL.
STO: "Now you're ignoring what you wrote, below:

"If a [fetus] is viable, then once removed from it's NLS (the womb), and helped with ALS, it will be able to survive and continue to survive on ALS."
If a [born infant] is viable then, even if it's on ALS for a time, it will eventually be able to survive without it."
Look at your statement number 1. If a fetus is removed from the womb and helped with ALS it IS AN INFANT, BORN INFANT,
If a BORN INFANT is on ALS it is still a BORN INFANT.
There is NO DIFFERENCE"
You're the one who doesn't get that viability of a fetus is determined BEFORE birth, and viability of that same human life once born and an infant is determined BEFORE removing it from ALS, if it needed ALS.
Viability of a fetus is about POTENTIAL to survive (without the WOMB = natural life support), determined while it's still being kept alive BY the womb, and potential to survive with or without ALS. If a fetus is born, put on ALS and dies, it hadn't been a viable fetus.
Viability of a newborn infant is the POTENTIAL to survive (without ALS), determmined while it's still being kept alive BY the artifical support. If the newborn is taken off ALS and it dies, it wasn't a viable infant.
Difference IS [when] viability is determined for each.
I haven't contradicted myself and haven't changed what I've been saying either. I've been saying the same thing 50 different ways, none of which you understood.
If [viability of a fetus] was about [after] being born, it wouldn't be determined while the fetus was in utero, or have anything to do with abortion. <<< That's what you PC keep ignoring. I haven't ignored anything.
