The Moral and Political Status of Children

Peter Vallentyne

Oxford University Press

The duties of procreators to their offspring are limited and fully discharged by ensuring that the children they create have lives that are worth living. All adults, in general, have a shared duty to ensure that children enjoy an equal opportunity to lead a good life. Procreators have a duty to others to ensure that their children do not violate the rights of others. They are even responsible for providing compensation for disadvantages caused for others by their adult children.

Keywords:   adults, children, compensation, duties, equal opportunity, procreators, responsibility, rights
