The question of when life begins is a deeply divisive issue, which has been debated to the moon and back without ever truly being answered, or so it seems. This article will critically analyse the reasoning behind the ‘Prolife’ argument and highlight its arbitrary nature. It will endeavour to examine the relevant legal instruments in order to discern whether the law recognises the right to life of unborn babies. Finally, this article will engage in a theoretical discussion about abortion, i.e. that if unborn babies were to have a right to life, would it be violated by abortion. Through its analysis this article seeks to raise awareness amongst the readers about the fickle nature of the arguments against abortion and advocates for policy
measures which ensure easy access to abortion for women, safeguarding them from the dangers of clandestine abortions.
