Hello my dear brothers and sisters, I have a question on the topic of when personhood begins. My sincere question is going with a premise that personhood begins from the fecundation of the ovule, if so, then: “Should we consider that all reserved rights by national legislators and international agreements for persons are for embryos too?”
Why am I asking, if yes, then a lot of legal questions appear when couples go for fertilization in vitro. For example http://hudoc.echr.coe.int/eng?i=001-80046 here in the European Court of Human Rights judgement is opened a little bit the legal problems that would face the recognition of embryo as person.
Please, as more as you can, refer to the topic from legal perspective too.
Thank you a lot. May God bless you.
