Planned Parenthood leader among 64 arrested protesting North Carolina anti-abortion law
A new low in the pro-choice argument. A parasite is a different species than the host. A baby is not a parasite.
No, it's not and thanks to science we are finding out sooner and sooner when a viable life occurs. Pro-lifers don't call it a parasite, but go ahead and call it that if it makes you feel better.
I should have said parasitic, since yes, same species, but cannot live without a host. Again, it is a woman's choice if she wants to provide her body as a means to sustain the life of another until it is viable.
My definition is from an expert in the field of parasitology.
A parasite is defined as an organism of one species living in or on an organism of another species (a hetero specific relationship) and deriving its nourishment from the host (is metabolically dependent on the host). (See Cheng, T.C., General Parasitology, p. 7, 1973.)
The only thing I find repugnant is that the pro-choice activists are trying to use "the fetus is actually a parasite so it is ok to abort it" excuse.
To lluvkrat..Do you know any other uses for the uterus other than hosting a baby? Seems like women's bodies were built to have this "parasite" grow inside them.
