In this volume we would like to put flesh on the link between human dignity as a constitutional principle and human dignity as a fundamental right, and as a lived experience in medical treatment, as was presented, each in his own way, by the late Chief Justice Meir Shamgar and by Edmund Pellegrino, a world-renowned expert on medical ethics.
A tangible expression of Human dignity is found in the Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty, whose second article stipulates: “There shall be no violation of the life, body or dignity of any person as such.”
