The debate over abortion, the right to privacy and the right to life has been in the public eye since the decisions of the United States Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton. In Roe v. Wade the court held that there is no religious, scientific or moral consensus about when the life begins and the right to privacy encompasses personal decision such as whether to proceed with or terminate a pregnancy. Till date there is a huge debate over status of fetus and its right to life. This paper tries to analyze the status of fetus and whether it can be accrued right to life just like human beings.
