The Fundamental Rights for Everyone.
Human rights should belong to everybody in the world. They are universal legal guarantees protecting individuals and groups against actions and omissions that undermine fundamental freedoms, entitlements and human dignity, without prejudice of any kind, such as race color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, birth or other status.
Everyone has a right to life, to liberty and to his or her security. The rights to life apply both to minorities and majority. Genocide, extrajudicial killings and murder sentences are all against human rights. Under medical law, only mothers under the risk of dying are allowed to do abortion (Lauren 2011). However, there is a debate on which life supersedes the other.
Abraham Lincoln (1858) championed for political and social equality. No one should be held in slavery or servitude. Therefore throughout the world all people should be treated with dignity; without torture or cruelty. Everyone has a right to do work of his or her choice, without any discrimination. Child labour should be discouraged throughout the world.
In most countries people have a right to own a property; all people have a right of a fair trial and hearing. All people should have a right to be heard and assembly. Every person has freedom of thought, conscience and worship,
Governments have a core obligation to satisfy people’s basic needs. (Mathew2008) Most governments have a policy that her people access basic education up to secondary level. All people have a right to medication, quality food, housing and medical care. The World Health Organization (WHO) argues that access to health care is an important human right.
Governments have the fundamental responsibility to protect people and to always act in their interests. The human rights form the core suitable governance.
Not only should human rights be realized for their own sake, these rights offer a framework to entrench democracy in its fullest form.
