Embryo..... the pre fetus product of conception from implantation through to the eighth
week of development.
Fetus..........a blob of cells which as it differentiates, forms a parasitic relationship with a
Parasite.......[from medical dictionary] An organism that lives in, and takes it's nourishment
from another. A parasite cannot live independently.
So an embryo/fetus is unable to survive without a host so cannot be considered a viable life
till such time that it is developed enough to survive on it's own.
I know women who have had terminations and i can assure you that NOT ONE of them took
the dicision to do so lightly, and contarary to popular belief not one of them is any sort of
'monster'. Infact i would go so far as to say many an anti abortionist's mother will have had
a termination, but they will never know. Women who terminate are ordinary women [ the
woman at the checkout, your neighbour, your childs teacher, the librarian etc.] and they only do
so after a lot of 'soulsearching' and are usually at a very low place in their lives at the time
they make that choice.
