    You're welcome. I never realized that those words are homonyms.

    Being from New York City, you'd find out many words are homonyms....

    The doctors should stay out of it. Doctors and religious do-gooders are the ones playing god, trying to make people have their babies against their will, and force children to be raised by parents who don't want them.

    Um, this woman wanted her baby actually. But she wanted society to pay the more than $1,000,000 to pay for the medical bills with an extremely poor prognosis likely.

    You mean like the National Enquirer fabrication about Johnathan Edwards having a poorly concealed affair while his wife claimed to battling cancer? Oh! Wait!

Outcomes vary, but greater than 50% of extremely premature babies have significant ongoing medical problems.
    When you play god, do you insist that your family provide sacrifice, or just bow to your altar?

    No, the actual practice of medicine involves far too much that is base, far too much that forces its practitioners and subjects to confront the all too mortal limitations of Man, and far too much frustration and failure to give one delusions of divinity.

    It is those wishing to direct the practice of a consequential art that they do not understand that can be rightfully called "playing god." The same might be said for inexperienced, inexpert and unqualified politicians running major countries, should that ever occur.

    The point of my post was to make people pause and think about what they do in these instances.

    Sometimes as much as it hurts it is better to "pull the plug."
