Talk:Hippocrates

From Conservapedia

Not sure the less sentence is necessary or fair. --John 23:42, 9 March 2007 (EST)

I slightly rewrote it. I think "profit" is not really a neutral formulation, and also, one does not need to be a physician to "profit" from it, but one does need to be a physician to take this oath and be bound by it. Also, I explicitly inserted "in its original formulation", as there are many variants in use today that do not include the statement on induced abortion. One can of course argue whether these are "false oaths", but I think that referring to "the original formulation" is a clear and accurate statement. PaulB 07:15, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

Added crosslink to "Oath of Hippocrates". I considered deleting the restatement of part of the Oath, but decided against it since it is the lead in to the following sentence. JesusSaves 07:22, 13 March 2007 (EDT)

I know this is a Conservapedia and not an encyclopedia, but shouldn't an article about Hippocrates actually say something about Hippocrates? This is really no more than a testomony by one doctor that abortion is wrong. Also, the sentence "Physicians who practice abortion today do not obey this Oath in its original formulation but this should not worry Christian doctors as the original wording began I swear by Apollo, Æsculapius, Hygieia, and Panacea which are heathen gods" really doesn't fit. Either (a) the site needs to be changed to Christianapedia or (b) this sentence needs to reference all non Greek religions or (c) it should be taken out entirely.
