Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I suppose you mean to deny that there actually is a living creature in there, whose life is stopped during the procedure.

Well Biologically and biblically it's debateable

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

No, what is debateable is whether it can be considered human being yet, or not. The quality of being alive and kicking :) is not.

So, before the foetus is viable, the question is whether it should can be considered a parasite or not?

Is this supposed to be provocative ? I didn't mention viability here. Until then, your speaking of parasites lies in the same category as JakeS's chicken egg-sterilization post. I'd really like the opinion of a few bloggers having experienced motherhood on this kind of language, because to me it is of the exact same fascist type as those instigating to the murder of abortion doctors.
