That was about the BORN infant, "reaching viability", you nitwit.
The viability of a fetus is BEFORE being born, while in utero, and something it's already "reached" BEFORE being born.
You numbskulls will never get it. You're still wrong, and always will be so long as you think viability of a [fetus] has to be "reached" [after] birth. A fetus isn't born, and infant. Viability of a fetus and abortion doesn't have anything to do with a newborn infant.
I have always discussed born infants "reaching viability" and in the same manner you've said, "...eventually be able to survive without ALS..." which makes the quoted phrases synonymous.

I have given examples of a physician deeming a fetus viable, birthing it, attaching it to ALs, only for the infant to die. Which means it didn't reach viability. There is no difference here, regardless of how willing you are to split hairs.

Please be done with misunderstanding what others post and then criticizing them ad infinitum even when you've been shown your mistake. It's a new day, a new year even. Let's move on.

As far as medical reality goes, yes. The infant has the "potential to survive" or will "eventually be able to survive" is what we mean when we use the term "reach viability". Because given ALS, if the infant does not survive, then the "potential" did not bear out. Thus, the infant was not viable -- even tho, legally it must have been "deemed" viable to qualify for ALS, as Doc said.
Yes! Hopefully it's cleared up and we all can move on to other interesting topics.

A "newborn" is a "BORN infant". Just like Katie said.

She was on the fence based on her own statements and writings over the years.

It is ironic that the woman who started Planned Parenthood said this about abortion:“It is an alternative that I cannot too strongly condemn. Although abortion may be resorted to in order to save the life of the mother, the practice of it merely for limitation of offspring is dangerous and vicious.”[The Nation, Jan. 27, 1932]

This is contradictory to giving out abortion information in the first edition of her birth control methods pamphlet, Family Limitation, published in 1914.

None of this answers my question, or even addresses the point.
What point in telling people things they already know, or can learn easily if they wish?
And there WERE no gospels when Jesus supposedly lived.
The gospel is simply the good news.

The disciples and followers of Christ continued spreading the good news so that by the time the New Testament was being written less than three decades after Christ's death, early churches had already been established in many places.

There were and still are al qaeda camps there. They may have politically disowned him, but they are anything but staunch allies against terrorism.

Some Americans also joined the enemy. They were from America.

The only "abortion" information she "gave out" in that publication was to say that though there are times when it is "justifiable", that preventing pregnancy will prevent abortions. Given the direct quote above, any reasonable person would conclude that by "justifiable", she meant to save the life of the woman.

Simple perception.
Personal perception is not the most reliable of sources for fact. Especially when one begins with a belief they want to see proven. Your "perception" of the 1914 publication you referred to in your previous post proves that it's not reliable.

I asked for your source, and you couldn't answer. WHERE does your "perception" come from? WHERE do your supposed "facts" come from?

Truly ironic. Sanger sounds more pro-life than someone who started Planned Parenthood.

“While there are cases where even the law recognizes an abortion as justifiable if recommended by a physician, I assert that the hundreds of thousands of abortions performed in America each year are a disgrace to civilization. I also assert that the responsibility for these abortions and the illness, misery and deaths that come in their train lies at the door of a government whose authority has been stretched beyond the limits of the people’s intention and which, in its puritanical blindness, insists upon suffering and death from ignorance, rather than life and happiness from knowledge and prevention.”(MS,“Birth Control or Abortion?” Birth Control Review [Dec. 1918]: 3-4 [MSM S70:0809])

"Knowledge and prevention". That's what I've been talking about.

Odd that Margaret Sanger and I would have the same message.
