El derecho de nacer (English title: The right to be born) is a Mexican telenovela produced by Carlos Sotomayor for Televisa in 2001.[1] Is a remake of the popular 1981 telenovela of the same name.

On February 5, 2001, Canal de las Estrellas started broadcasting El derecho de nacer weekdays at 8:00pm, replacing Abrázame muy fuerte. The last episode was broadcast on May 25, 2001 with Sin pecado concebido replacing it the following day.

Kate del Castillo and Saul Lisazo starred as protagonists, while Carlos Bracho and Maite Embil starred as antagonists. Diana Bracho, Sabine Moussier and Gabriela Goldsmith, Francis Laboriel starred as stellar performances.


El derecho de nacer tells the story of the del Junco family: Rafael (Carlos Bracho), a powerful man, a despot, and a male chauvinist; his wife Clemencia (Diana Bracho), who flees her reality with drugs; and their daughters María Elena (Kate del Castillo) and Matilde (Maite Embil), victims of their father's oppression.

Their father is, to the public, a pillar of society, but in secret gives free rein to his base instincts. María Elena is seduced by Alfredo Martínez (Hugo Acosta), a compulsive gambler who flees the city in order to escape his debts, leaving the minor pregnant. Upon finding out, Don Rafael tries to abort his daughter's child, but it's too late, so he sends her to his farm so that the baby will be born there.

Given María Elena's refusal to give the child up for adoption, her father orders his foreman to kill the newborn. María Dolores (Francis Laboriel), María Elena's faithful nanny, saves the little one and flees with him to Mexico City.

Don Rafael believes that the child has died, while María Elena dedicates her body and soul to searching for her little son with the help of Aldo Drigani (Saúl Lisazo), whom she later marries after he saves her from various conflicts. With many sacrifices, but with a mother's great love, María Dolores rears little Alberto (Miguel Ángel Biaggio) and educates him so that he will be a good man.

Thus, he becomes a brilliant physician who goes to Mérida, where he faces a past that he never suspected and a future he never pursued.
