All that extraneous detail added to your description is almost pornographic; bloody babies screaming and dying and such.
Perspective. Let's just look at SURGERY. Period.
How many people have died in working out sound methodologies for invasive surgery?
How many people have died before medicine was "perfected" to the level of 1850?
How many discoveries were made and procedures were refined and how many people were killed or died as a result of 'medical' intervention just between
the years 1850 - 1900?
Please describe the state of medical technology between 1900 - 1950.
A whole lot of headway was made that half century.
How many people died refining those procedures and making all those new discoveries?
How about all the interesting developments between 1950 - 2000 like organ transplants, artificial hearts, and a number of many other fascinating
revolutions in medicine as well as new challenges?
If you were in a car accident today, in the near future, would you prefer to be treated with the pinnacle of medical technologies available now in
2013, or would you like to be treated with the medical technologies available in 2000?
You'd be surprised at the differences, and you'd be surprised at mortality demographics for some procedures even between then and now.
In just the last 10 years alone: Top 10
medical advances from 2000 - 2010
Do you realize Heart Disease deaths have dropped by 40%?
Who's mother, father, aunt, uncle, wife husband, brother, sister, or any other loved ones are alive today due technologies and procedures developed in
just the last 10 years?
Who died between 1990 - 2000 that could have lived with the technologies available now?
Of course, then, we've got the sorts of people that scream their bloody heads off about "Playing God".
Once Upon a Time, simply cutting a person open for even the most minor surgery was considered "Playing God" as who else other than some magical
invisible fairy dust superstition man in the sky was allowed to tinker with the very insides of a precious divinely created human, insides hidden from
the rest of creation for good reason?
Some folk just need to go back to running around naked, smeared in their own filthy excrement, cowering in bladder and bowel emptying fear at every
lightning strike or act of nature.
Tell you what. Convert to Amish, or whatever it is they practice.
None of you will have to worry about any of these horribly disturbing advances in any sort of technology ever again.
