Also, delivering babies is routine for doctors. For all that doctor knew he was going to be delivering a baby which is not a big deal at all to doctors considering the nurses do 90% of the work and doctors come in at the last minute to birth the child. Hell these days doctors are so busy they recommend c-sections just to get the process done with as fast as possible.
Sometimes a trivial comparison is just as bad as an 'emotional' one.
A couple of years ago St. Joseph's (Catholic) Hospital in Phoenix faced an emergency situation where the life of the mother who was 11 weeks pregnant was in immediate danger. Physicians saved the life of the mother and terminated the pregnancy. A Roman Catholic Bishop, Thomas Olmstead, in Phoenix ended St. Joseph's affiliation with the Roman Catholic Church and ex-communicated the hospital administrator, a Roman Catholic nun. Now we just call it Joe's Hospital.
Unfortunately, Olmstead, then did it again to another hospital in Mesa. Fortunately for Phoenix, the Vatican is reported to be in the process of promoting the ambitious Bishop to a position in Rome.
In the meantime, in the Bishop's diocese a church refuses to pay for interpreters for deaf Catholics while at the same time it continues to build and expand to the tune of millions of dollars.
This goes back to November 2009, when a woman who was 11 weeks pregnant went to St. Joe's with pulmonary hypertension, which limits the ability of the heart and lungs to function properly. Hormones produced by the uterus during pregnancy seriously exacerbate the dangerous condition. The medical staff believed the young woman was close to death. In order to save her life, doctors terminated the pregnancy.
Olmstead said the surgery was an abortion and threatened to pull the hospital's Catholic affiliation if it did not comply with conditions to ensure that it is adhering to the church's teachings.
The nun who was part of the decision to perform the procedure, Sister Margaret McBride, had already been excommunicated.

Nope, my example illustrated my point perfectly. the only difference with yours is that you can't explain how it supports your position and that it makes an emotional appeal.
hence, the emotional appeal, and your lack of ability to explain how it undermines my original argument ...
Also, the Hippocratic Oath is "do no harm" not "do not miss a page or phone call."
Sorry to tell you that child birth isn't an "emergency" it's routine. Unfortunately this woman was not in labor (which I assume everyone thought she was in labor) and she died of something not related to her pregnancy (or not considering it was her aorta).
It's a sad story, but I'm not going to blame the doctor.
