[Autom. eng. transl.] The role that respects the legal good represented by human life in the constitutional system is discussed, as a presupposition of the principle of equality. The direct derivability from the Constitution of the right to conscientious objection in relation to obligations that may imply acting against human life is argued. It is evident in this context that the objector does not manifest an anti-juridical attitude, but rather the unwillingness to act against a constitutional principle of a higher order. The consequences of this are analyzed with respect to issues relevant to the health professions.
