Legal Representation for the Extrauterinely Conceived Person from the Roman Tradition to the Law of New Technologies
The person of the conceived child, whatever is the place of gestation, will be the object of analysis in Roman sources, in Argentine legislation, in some international rules and recent decisions of national, foreign and international courts. Our position will be based on absolute respect for human life from its beginning at conception, wherever it takes place, to its natural end, open to new realities but, at the same time, alert to everything that may be detrimental to the essential dignity of man when scientific or technological development is empty of moral values. The sudden advance of medicine and biology gave some alternative answers to the difficulties couples go through due to sterility, thus opening new horizons in this field. Hence, such investigations should be encouraged while respecting the intrinsic dignity of the human person. An approach to this issue involves deep bioethical options, since it demands respect for the autonomy of the parents’ person, as long as in that exercise dignity, equality, or the rights of the extrauterinely conceived person are not violated, because you should not lose sight of the first reason: the right is of the child to be born and not of the parents to have or not to have a child, and it can never be invoked putting the life or the health of the most defenseless human being at risk. These practices cause more alarm than hope because everything technically possible is not, for that unique reason, ethically acceptable. Scientific progress should be oriented towards a direction that is truly fruitful and beneficial for humanity; and precisely of these new practices you do not have such certainty.
