A parasite draws its sustenance DIRECTLY from the body of its host, compromising the host's health and well-being and providing nothing but danger and loss in return.
An UNWANTED fetus is therefore a parasite, but a wanted or cherished fetus is a symbiont, because it does return value to the host in the form of joy and anticipation.
A four year (or four month) old independent air-breather is NOT a parasite, because YOU can feed it and care for it even if its mother does not.
ONLY host mothers are qualified to determine whether a fetal passenger is a parasite or a symbiont.
