A human being has no natural rights of any nature  (Natural Rights Quotes) We must go beyond the arrogance of human rights. We must go beyond the ignorance of civil rights.

They have supposed that the deity, from the relations we stand in to himself and to each other, has constituted an eternal and immutable law, which is indispensably obligatory upon all mankind, prior to any human institution whatever. This is what is called the law of nature... Upon this law depend the natural rights of mankind  (Natural Rights Quotes) Upon this law, depend the natural rights of mankind, the supreme being gave existence to man, together with the means of preserving and beatifying that existence.

Do you endanger your child to fight for the right thing, or do you keep your mouth shut and let your child grow up in a world where their natural rights are stripped away from them?  (Natural Rights Quotes) In speaking of natural rights, therefore, it is essential to remember that these alleged rights have no political force whatsoever, unless recognized and enforced by the state  (Natural Rights Quotes) Every man, when he comes to be sensible of his natural rights, and to feel his own importance, will consider himself as fully equal to any other person whatever  (Natural Rights Quotes) If two individuals enter into a contract to commit trespass, theft, robbery or murder upon a third, the contract is unlawful and void, simply because it is a contract to violate natural justice, or men’s natural rights  (Natural Rights Quotes) The very idea of law originates in men’s natural rights.
