Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to emphasize one of the most important human right, namely the right to life of the unborn human being. I will analyse a number of decisions of the European Court of Human Rights and their provisions in comparison with Christian morality. Through this study I will highlight how the concepts of ”life” and ”person” are defined in the legal and theological debate. It can be noticed certain hesitations in the legal texts for a definition of the unborn human being as a person or individual with full rights. The ethical challenge that this study points out is precisely the recognition of the human being as a person from the moment of conception and the respect of his right to life. The analyse will also try to observe how important the cultural-philosophical or moral-religious background of a community is in taking bioethical decisions.
