Did the head have a right to life?

In a rare case in Egypt a baby, born with a second head. A head that could blink and smile, underwent an operation to have it removed.

The head was in effect a siamese twin, that had only partially separated.

It's interesting that the word used to describe it is 'parasite'. Does that make a pretty distasteful subject a bit easier to deal with?

I wonder what the ethicists in Liberal HQ make of it?
