Among contemporary moral philosophers in the West, many agree on the three following points. First, compared with everything and everyone else, those individuals who are persons have a unique, superior moral status. Second, all persons, and only persons, can have moral rights, including such rights as the rights to life and bodily integrity. Third, all persons, and only persons, do have such rights. None of these widely shared beliefs, I argue, withstands critical scrutiny
