If the rights or wrongs of abortion are a judicial matter rather than political, central to it would seem to be the question of what defines a "person".
Critical to the idea that abortion should be illegal seems to be that a foetus is defined as a person, and is entitled to all the rights etc as such.
Civil law (including commercial law, in the United States and all English-speaking jurisdictions) has its own definitions of persona which is in some ways more extensive and in others less so than in criminal law. For example legally constituted companies, or governmental bodies etc have legal personality and can sue or be sued.
But is there ANY branch of the law, in any country of which subscribers may be aware - where a foetus is given legal personality separate to that of the mother?
For example, I could leave money in my will to my 5 year-old granddaughter, and, should she not survive me, - to "any of her ( currently unborn) issue". That would not mean that the unborn issue at the time of writing the will had legal personality - but they would acquire it at birth. But is there any country where they might acquire it at e.g. conception? The question is not as irrelevant as it might sound, since if a foetus, for example, inherited money, but did not survive birth - would the money in question become part of a separate estate in their name, and dealt with appropriately, under laws of intestacy. Does anyone know of any country where that, for example, might be the case?
