The term "fetus" origins from fairies; meaning everything is hidden. As long as the baby is in the womb, it is called a fetus. Fetal period is the start point of human rights; hence, this period has been the focus of attention. Many verses of the Holy Quran speak about fetal development. Shiite jurists also have considered some rights for fetus. Bequest, devotion, and inheritance belong to the fetus; providing that it is alive. Also, due to the existence of unborn child in wife's womb, alimony is awarded.
