  • Maria-Monica Popescu-Mitroi Politehnica University of Timişoara


Scientific arguments on our start in life correlated with philosophical problems associated with them in terms of theories of individual and personal identity generate certain attitudes/actions towards the product of conception and its further development in the prenatal stage (i.e. towards the unborn child or the unborn man) with major reverberations for the future of our civilization. Prenatal development, following scientific investigations, raises a number of philosophical and moral questions about the legitimacy of the interruption of the cycle of life in the initial stage, aspects that we examine in this article.
