As discussed under the Panimmunity entry, it is not possible for hominid women to become pregnant without medical intervention. This situation allowed despotic rulers, both Corporate and political, to have a major power over society and individuals by withholding or threatening to withhold the required medical intervention for procreation. When the common laws were written into the Common Economic Protocols, regulation of this power was one of the first priorities.
The most famous aspect of the CEP common law is probably the Birthright. Every citizen has the right to one child under the so-called Right of Reproduction. This right can be (but seldom is) revoked as punishment for serious crimes. A Corporation can also petition Protocol Enforcement to provide additional Birthrights for its employees, a service that usually entails the payment of a substantial fee. Evasion of the Birthright laws is a felony.
