Objective: The aim: To find out the peculiarities of citizens' implementation of their reproductive rights, while combining the basic principles of medicine and law.

Patients and methods: Materials and methods: Formal-logical methods of analysis and synthesis allowed to reveal the content of the concepts that make up the subject of research, to classify them, as well as to formulate intermediate and general conclusions. The systematic method allowed to study the role and significance of human reproductive right among other somatic human rights and freedoms. Using the historical method, the doctrinal basis of the study was analyzed, and the main stages of the formation of human right to transplantation were identified. The application of the above-mentioned methods necessitates the inclusion of an activity method in the research methodology. This method, becoming a logical continuation of the integral structural-functional method, involves the study of relevant reproductive rights through the development of medical technologies.

Conclusion: Conclusions: The modern development of biotechnology has caused a number of serious threats to the possibility of realizing the human right to life. The modern understanding of the content of the right to life concerns a number of bioethical aspects, primarily related to the development of scientific and technological progress in both biology and medicine. The content of the human right to life in the context of the achievements of reproductive rights is significantly expanding, which leads to a new concept of it, not only as a fundamental human right, but also as a set of rights that relate to human life, taking into account the principles of bioethics. Therefore, the need to compare the goal and the means in biological and medical manipulations with human life, their consideration of the ethical and moral aspect is extremely important for the further development of the entire legal array regarding biomedicine.
