Abstract

Human rights have undergone constant evolution. Recently, however, new generations of rights are developing: from political and civil rights to social and economic rights, so much so that this period may be defined as the age of human rights. Many differences exist between moral rules and judicial law. While moral rights are not necessarily recorded in statutory law, some judicial laws, which are capable of being imposed and/or appealed within a true territorial government, originate from moral rules. Common sense has reservations about whether human rights can be labelled as laws in a rudimentary way; instead, society places human rights in the category of moral rights. These moral rights, in fact, are not the fruit of compromise, but are absolute and essential to the inner self. Throughout this article, the evolution of end of life rights is discussed, with particular regard to how those rights are directly correlated to organ transplantation.
