Right to Life

About this right

The right to life is inherent to the human person, according to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (Art. 6). In other words, no one may be arbitrarily deprived of his or her life.

In short, the enjoyment and exercise of this fundamental right guarantees access to all other rights, which is why it is the State's obligation to respect and guarantee life for everyone, without distinctions, discrimination or privileges of any kind.

This right not only refers to the natural life of individuals, but also to the dignified life that is proper to human beings.                                                                                                                                                            The right to life is a fundamental right of an irrevocable nature, which means that under no circumstances to be violated or disregarded.
