Whereas cutting the umbilical cord is not nearly so, as it would eventually
fall off of its own accord.
Then you mention an inflamed appendix being removed. Removing the appendix
is necessary to ensure the survival of the child.
Further on, as to the choice of the child of an unhealthy diet, this too is
in line with saving the child from eventual unhealth and even sickness.
Then tell me, Gimwinkle, what does removing a healthy and even vital part of
a child's body has to do with ensuring its survival?
I would venture, nothing at all.
