    In the USA and many parts of the western world, the right to live cannot be considered to be a human right. It is a civil right received at birth. Roe versus Wade clearly defined unborn children to be unpersons that have no civil rights of protection. As abortion is legal, life must be regarded a civil right. Science is clear that life begins at conception. If the right to live were a human right, the unborn child had this right. As it doesn’t, we have to consider it a cicil right only, which is not universal!

      To Andereas Tolk: Your statement “In the USA and many parts of the western world, the right to live cannot be considered to be a human right” is absolutely true, unfortunately. And so with the rest of your comment.

      A civil right is a right that you obtain as being part of a country or state. A human right is universal and should be established for everyone simply because they are human.

        To Saif Ali: A statement of what human rights are really cannot use a conditional such as should or could. Better is: “A human right is universal and is established for everyone simply because they are human.” It turns out that a human right is not secure from infringement or absolute negation by members of a tyrannical government, even if spelled out in documents of law. A single good example of this is the right not to be unnecessarily pushed, shoved, taken to the ground, searched, orifice-probed, assaulted, injured , or killed by “law officers” during an investigation, detention, or arrest action.

        Unfortunately, we have in the U.S. a large component of people who do not believe this statement, and who also believe that already existing rights (some call these civil rights) spelled out in plain English in the Constitution can be infringed or negated entirely by mere (unlawful) legislation and enforcement and/or executive order.

        To taekwon: you are not helpful but merely insulting, probably as an attempt to puff yourself up.

    “Civil rights” are written in the lows of any country. It’s clear.

    What about “human rights”?
    It looks like a value of liberalism, but liberalism is not the one and not the best paradigm of international relationship in the world.
    Different peoples can understand this different.
    Where is written what is “human rights” and how we have to understand it?

    It is evidently clear that Civil Rights based upon the definition is a thought brought on and believed that all people are not human. This is just the prejudice and racist view of American and European ideology. Using the constitution or some law does not make people’s hypothesis correct nor does it make any sense. All people are human and if not show me a man or woman who is not?

    Isn’t the language of the statement in the preamble;
    “We the People” a Human Rights Declaration?
