When speaking of the rights of and refering to the one to be conceived in Law we use "concepturus"
Which is the future active participle.
If we wanted to correctly speak of and refer to the one to be conceived shouldn't we use concipiendus (the passive participle)?
Are we actually refering to the one about to conceive; the future mother? Isn't the mother always feminine why don't we use conceptura if we are referring to the mother?
Edit follow up question (also posted as a reply in an answer here
Isn't the use of nasciturus (naturus) wrong? Shouldn't it too be nascendus instead? I never understood "morituri te salutant". Why not moriendus? How can the future active participle be used in the place of future passive participle?
