It is also known as cost of life, value which prevent a fatality and implied costof averting a fatality. Human life is “priceless”, i.e. human being can not bought at any cost or
prize. Interpreting and understanding value of life has issues as theologians, lawyers, ethicistsand philosophers since dawn of time. Issues pertaining to value of life is most sensitive ineconomic. The principle of value of life thought is amount which is optimal from standpoint ifinsurance and value that needed for deterrence(Banzhaf, H. S., 2014).MAIN BODYMajor problem while discussing value of human life is eclectic terminology whichpervades debate. Term 'sanctity of life' is generally used in literature and in case law. Sanctity oflife arouse strong religious connotations which do not sit forthrightly with the mordenconceptions of role, purpose and aim of criminal law. 'Idea that only God have power to decidemoment of death of individual'. Absolute interpretation of belief 'sanctity of life' is taking humanlife is a categorically wrong and never admissible not to seek to preserve life of a baby. Qualityof life is defined as person's physical well-being, social and emotional and also their intellectualcapability as well as their perform ability to ordinary tasks within a community. Quality of life ishard to explain as people have different opinions on a 'good' quality life(Kirkwood, T. B., 2015).Commonly sanctity has tendency to give impression which life should preserved at every costs, abelief which is referred as vitalism. In view of sanctity of life is being closely aligned with thereligious thoughts. The word 'human' represents something that is unique and valuable which isreserved only for one species. Every person has it's own value of life, people care about for oneanother that is not interesting. What is interesting is the belief that an individual can haveintrinsic value worth about whether it is useful or not to others. Intrinsic values are objectivevalues or desire independent value. If a person has intrinsic values, it is good to exist for thatperson.It seems clear that many individuals find their life value to be intuitive. People do not livebecause they are manipulated to live they live because they think that their life is meaningful.Universe would be meaningless and empty without consciousness. A world that is full of realpeople who have minds seem more important than a world which is full of robots that isprogrammed to act accordingly. Humans care for those who are close to them if a person dieswho was close to a person, that person will be upset because that person knows value of diedpersons life. It is very difficult to end own life and these kind of decisions come so hardly(Fuller, M. and Moore, R., 2017).
