The right to life, often regarded as the foremost among fundamental rights and freedoms, is considered sacred in many religions and cultures and is characterized as one of the most critical rights to safeguard. What does the right to life entail?

Unlike other living beings, humans are born with the unique capacity for abstract, conceptual, and symbolic thinking. This is why some philosophers, such as Hegel, assert that human beings are placed into this world, implying that humans are not a mere product of the world but rather arrived in it afterward. A human is a being that questions life meaning they are inherently inclined to question the nature of life. When we examine the historical, biological, and social development of the world, human beings ask questions such as: What is life? Why am I here? Where am I going? Where did I come from? Who am I? Where do I belong? Along with these questions, the most profound one that people contemplate revolves around the essence of life itself.

The basic human drive is the desire to live. Right now, this urge is essential for human beings to survive. Without this innate drive to live, individuals would lack the motivation to persevere. All living beings possess an innate tendency to live. However, humans, uniquely, contemplate this instinct in abstract terms, and for that reason, they address the issue in terms of rights.
