We first begin in a present day abortion clinic of Athens Greece Socrates unaware of his new surroundings begins to question Dr Herrod However the doctor is very skeptical and he himself quickly doubts that it is the real Socrates that hes speaking to But this is beside the point as Dr Herrod asks Socrates if hes in the right place Socrates makes note that this is indeed an abortion clinic and that he himself is an abortionist of thoughts This is the starting point to a back-and-forth discussion where Socrates asks the doctor to indulge him with conversation The doctor is hesitant and is quite defensive when Socrates simply asks him what he does at the clinic This is because as Dr Herrod put it his work is very controversial Socrates takes note of that saying that while some would feel his work is a good thing others think it is evil To this statement Herrod retorts by saying that his work is neutral that abortions are strictly a medical issue not to be judged morally However Socrates gets the doctor to say that it is a moral issue He does this by having Herrod acknowledge the fact that he is paid for his services and people only pay for services that are helpful and being helpful is a good thing Therefore they can then judge his actions as good or bad in moral terms because it is indeed applicable From here Socrates asks the doctor whether or not he feels his work is good or bad and he says that he believes it to be good Then upon reaching this argument Socrates questions why its good to which Herrod replies to by saying that the burden of proof is on his opponents pointing to the liberal presumption He then says that the argument that his opponents have against him is a weak one saying that it depends on an emotional term in order
