Abstract:   (269 Views)

 Human life is self-founded and should not be reduced to a right; protectting human life in various dimensions, is the goal of rights. Since the human embryo has a human nature - and this is also accepted by the supporters of the theory of personhood - and has life, only this life must be supported and the embryo has a chance to survive; what is the fact that the relationship between parents and fetus-child is not a proprietary bond. being a person is not an inherent characteristic in the definition of human nature; and the support of the existence of a human being should not be reduced to his being a person; protection of human life is the basis of the criminalization of murder, and abstract characteristics such as personhood do not play a role in the inclusion of this crime.
Keywords: right, fetus, person, human, life.
