Birth Right...?

Are Human Rights such as those in America (for one example) Birth Rights? Without civilized society would and should every human brought into this world have what some believe ot be the fundamental rights of a human. Do humans really have inherant and inalienable rights just because they were born?


"All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood." --Article 1 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. ( )

Are they really?

"Do humans really have inherant and inalienable rights just because they were born?"

Yes, we do because we say we do, it's in the interest of the species and every individual to bestow such rights upon ourselves.

Side: Yes they are.

Society says that we have said inalienable rights and I am implying the lack of said society. "We do because we say we do" implies the presence of a civilized society stating that all humans have said rights. Also, why is it in the interest of the species? If you lived without basic human rights and things went well for whatever reason I'd reckon that you would feel otherwise. By saying that it is in the interest of the species you are instilling the beliefs that you have grown up with into what you believe to be fact. It is like saying that western society ideals are best for the Middle East, the person stating this has grown up with that belief being instilled in them.

Side: No they are not.

All persons born are equal and should have certain rights to be free from Government tyranny.

Side: Yes they are.
