No, that isn't what a civil right is.
An unalienable right is a right that exists from God, and can't be taken away by a government. It's part of nature. You always have it. It's what makes right and wrong right and wrong.
A civil right is something specifically from being a citizen of a country. A civil right might include voting - but that is completely different depending on which type of country you live in and if you are a citizen of not.
Under our *actual*, the way it is suppose to be, government, we don't have a national government, but a federal government - and the constitution is a compact between the States, which means it is quite a bit different than what it is commonly thought of as being.
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
