“The Protection of The EU Fundamental Rights: The Fundamental Right To Life”
The key values on which the Union is founded are enshrined in Article 2 of the Treaty of European Union. They are:
Respect for human dignity,
The rule of law, and
Respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities.
Respecting people’s rights is one of the EU’s basic obligations. These rights must be respected by the EU when applying policies and programs, by the EU institutions and by each of the Member States.
