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)
