You've talked yourself into believing I have said these things in parenthesis (not a baby until cord cut....not a baby until 48 hours after birth to allow the brain to develop more...blah blah...).<quoted text>
It is because of morons like you (not a baby until cord cut....not a baby until 48 hours after birth to allow the brain to develop more...blah blah...) and cPeter (a newborn is not viable if requires medical assistance to survive) that the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA) was signed into law (2002). The government had to spell it out for ignoramuses like you.
Now, quit being dishonest and providing partial quotes as non sequiturs. And try to remember the context these thoughts are attached.
To start, I've never said, "not a baby until cord cut" as a stand alone. It goes with a hypothetical you asked and I graciously answered. Now, you are smarmy enough to continue on with your charade, but I'm done with the whole thing.
Birthing is a process. Transforming from fetus to newborn is a process. Brain functions and bodily functions begin a slow process of growth and development following the mechanisms of delivery. There is no magical moment where fetus becomes baby as some of you like to believe.
To end, I've never said, "not a baby until 48 hours after birth to allow the brain to develop more..." I have stated, and you've quoted, newborn brains aren't fully functioning, the process is about 48hrs following delivery.
You are beyond pathetic using these fallacies over and over again like your crazy filled fantasies involving aborted fetuses (real or imagined).
