Legal protection of nasciturus in Poland-selected issues
Languages of publication
The provisions of Polish private law do not contain any general regulation specifying a legal position of nasciturus. Such status quo of Polish legislation evokes debates, theoretical disputes and discre-pancies in judicature with regard to the legal position of nasciturus. Judicature more and more often goes beyond the provisions granting nasciturus legal capacity only in the indicated scope by applying extensive interpretation. The authors discussing judicature analyze the legal position of fetus in medical, inheritance, and insurance law, draw the conclusion that there is a strong need for introducing a general legal article which describes the legal protection of interests of fetus.
