For example, during Bob's coverage of abortion last Tuesday, he started talking about the Hippocratic Oath. Here's what he said (Bob's emphasis is shown in italics and his sound effects are in brackets):
I'm gonna give you a doctor's perspective, kind of a medical perspective, on this issue of abortion and I thought the first place I would go is the Hippocratic oath. We've all heard about this, right? Doctor's take the Hippocractic oath. Have you ever actually read the Hippocratic oath? Did you know that the Hippocratic oath itself specifically addresses abortion? And specifically says, 'we will not do this.' [Bob chuckling] Most people are completely unaware ... that's what it actually ... I've got a copy right here [paper shaking] of the Hippocratic oath. It was written in about 400 B.C. from Hippocrates and I'm going to read you ... I'm not going to read the whole thing, just an excerpt of it. 'I will give no deadly medicine to anyone if asked, nor suggest, any such counsel, and in like manner, I will not give to a woman a pessary to produce abortion.' It's in the actual hypocratic oath. I wonder if abortion doctors are taking that oath? [whistles]"Well, first of all, the section that Bob read was a translation from the original Greek text from 400 years before Jesus. You can find plenty of translations of this classical oath online (here's one from MIT and another from Nova on PBS). Bob asserts that this classical oath is what doctors are pledging when they graduate medical school. However, most new doctors actually swear to a modern version of the oath, such as this one written in 1964 by the Academic Dean at Tufts Medical School. Note that this modern oath says nothing about abortion.
Getting back to the classical oath, it's very telling to see what Bob didn't mention. First, the classical oath starts out with "I swear by Apollo Physician and Asclepius and Hygieia an Panaceia and all the gods and goddesses..." That's right, the classical oath starts out by calling the names of a bunch of Greek gods which Christianity specifically rejects. Shouldn't the entire oath be rejected by Bob based on this fact?
But wait, it gets better. The classical oath also rejects surgery when it states, "I will not use the knife, not even on sufferers from stone, but will withdraw in favor of such men as are engaged in this work." This is obviously not the case in modern medicine and has not been for hundreds of years.
It's ludicrous for Bob to use this oath that nobody follows in his "discussion" of abortion as if it had any relevance. Once again, we see that Bob provides no substance in his his arguments, if you can call them that.
