International Regulation of the Right to Life
AbstractThe right to life represents the most important component of the value system that constitutes the subject of the international regulations on the legal protection of the human rights. This is the “first of the human rights” and it represents an assumption for the existence of the other rights; exercising the other rights would be senseless unless a protection of the human rights exists. The entire system of civil rights is actually subordinated to this right since these rights accompany the individual from the moment of his birth or some of them even from the moment of his conception until the moment of his death, some of them having legal effects after his death as well. Under these circumstances, the necessity for a regulation and an efficient protection of the right to life appear as an imperative for the international concerns in the field of human rights.
