Please delete "in the same sense" from my remark.
I was trying to clarify the "part" concept by giving
another example of a part.  I think the resulting
comparison of "kidney" and "fetus" was somewhat
helpful, but it clearly distracted us from persuing
the original discussion of a "fetus".    (01)

I concede that calling the fetus a part of the mother
does not resolve all the questions concerning the
legal and moral status of the fetus.    (02)
