ABSTRACT
The article presents a moral perspective to extend civil rights to the unborn from creation to natural death. This article assumes that it is immoral and unethical to take the life of an innocent human being, even if domestic law sanctions acts such as abortion and contraception. This article also assumes that it is morally unacceptable for one human being to enslave or experiment upon another, even if that other person is an unborn human being and is not a constitutionally legally protected person. It discusses the issue of abortion, as it is at the core of the moral debate concerning the constitutional depersonalization of the unborn.
