The right to make a will is essentially a property right. The entity with which a will is concerned is the testator's property and there is a very close relation between the right to acquire property when alive and the right to say who will get one 's property when one is gone.
Seeing, therefore, that wills and property are so closely allied, in order to better understand the ethical view of testaments and testamentary rights , it would be well to give a brief resume of the ethical view of property and property rights.
