Partus sequitur ventrem (L. "That which is born follows the womb"; also partus) was a legal doctrine passed in colonial Virginia in 1662 and other English crown colonies in the Americas which defined the legal status of children born there; the doctrine mandated that all children would inherit the legal status of their mothers. As such, children of enslaved women would be born into slavery. The legal doctrine of partus sequitur ventrem was derived from Roman civil law, specifically the portions concerning slavery and personal property (chattels).

  • Partus sequitur ventrem, souvent abrégé en partus, dans les colonies nord-américaines britanniques et plus tard aux États-Unis, était une doctrine juridique que les colons anglais incorporèrent à la législation relative aux définitions de l'esclavage. Elle est dérivée du droit civil romain qui jugeait que le statut d'esclave d'un enfant suivait celui de sa mère. Il a été largement adopté dans les lois sur l'esclavage aux colonies et aux États-Unis qui leur ont succédé. L'expression latine signifie littéralement « ce qui est accouché dépend de l’utérus ».
  • Partus sequitur ventrem, spesso abbreviata come partus, è stata una dottrina legale in vigore nelle colonie britanniche del Nord America e successivamente negli Stati Uniti d'America, inclusa nella serie di norme che regolavano la schiavitù nel territorio, derivata dalle norme del Diritto Romano. La frase in latino significa grossomodo che il nascituro segue il ventre, ovvero tradotto in termini legali che colui che fosse nato da una madre schiava avrebbe seguito lo stesso destino divenendo anch'egli schiavo, proprietà a vita di colui che possedeva il genitore.
