1. Tana Kama: A woman who has a baby via caesarean section is unlike a woman who gives birth naturally.
2. Rebbi Shimon: A birth via caesarean section has the same laws as a natural birth.
3. Rebbi Shimon agrees that an animal born via caesarean section from a Kodshim animal cannot be offered as a Korban.
4. The verse, "These are the laws of the Olah, it is the Olah," excludes three types of invalid Olos.
5. Rebbi Shimon argues that the verse above (see #4) includes some Korbanos while it excludes others.
A BIT MORE
1. Unlike a woman who gives birth naturally, a woman who has a baby via caesarean section does not have days of Tum'ah (7 for a boy, 14 for a girl), days of Taharah (33 for a boy, 66 for a girl), and she does not have to bring a Korban after birth. The Tana Kama derives this from the verse, "When a woman will conceive," implying that all of the laws stated after this verse apply only when she gives birth through the area used to enable her to conceive.
2. Rebbi Shimon understands that the extra verse, "She will give birth," includes a birth via caesarean section.
3. He derives through a Gezeirah Shavah from a firstborn animal that just as a firstborn animal born via caesarean section is not offered as a Korban, any animal born from a Kodshim animal cannot be offered as a Korban.
4. Rebbi Yehudah: The limbs of an animal slaughtered at night or whose blood was spilled before sprinkling or whose blood left the Azarah before being sprinkled, are taken off the altar even if they were mistakenly placed there.
5. Rebbi Shimon says that the only time we take limbs of sacrifices off the altar is if they were never fit to be a sacrifice even before they entered the Azarah. This is opposed to sacrifices that became invalid during the Avodah (i.e. the examples in #4) whose limbs stay on the altar if they were mistakenly placed there.
