In reply to comment: Define "natural rights." (see in situ)

Here goes...

My definition would be: rights inherent to all living things. We can look at them within the framwork of politics or nature. A natural right, as per our consitution, is a right that can not be taken away by government, one that we inherently have by virtue of god or nature... but in reality they are really the philisophical musings of men attempting to create a just society. Natural rights, in a historic context, are rights governed by natural law.

If you would like me to enumerate them... that is a different story and would probably require a new thread and lots of back and forth conversation... Which would be a great thread, especially if we were dicussing rights for other species.

Please understand that I admit I don't have all of the answers but the best way to learn is through discussions like these. It used to be one of my favorite things about this website. Now everybody just gets mad and tries to win the argument.
