Transcript of HUMAN RIGHTS

"A right that is believed to belong justifiably to every person"
Something to which you are entitled by virtue of being human. Human rights are based on the principle of respect for the individual. Their fundamental assumption is that each person is a moral and rational being who deserves to be treated with dignity. They are called human rights because they are universal.
