    #1 can refer to a fetus, despite what the pro lifers think.

    #2 could refer to a lazy welfare recipient (not all of them, though)

    I posted that because I get a lot of righteous indignation when I refer to some people as such. I suggest those with a problem with it contact dictionary.com and practically every other dictionary organization (I can't be bothered to check them all).

    The difference is that in your #1 example, the fetus is created by the host.
