Let’s start with some basic definitions.

Human: A member of the Homo sapiens species; a man, woman or child; a person. Rights: Things to which you are entitled or allowed; freedoms that are guaranteed.

Natural Rights: Rights given to all humans, simply for the sake of being human. They are universal moral principles among all cultures and societies and can't be reversed by government laws.

ALL HUMAN BEINGS ARE BORN FREE AND EQUAL IN DIGNITY AND RIGHTS.
While some dictionaries define the word right as “a privilege,” when used in the context of “natural rights,” we are talking about something more basic. Every person is entitled to certain fundamental rights, simply by the fact of being human. These are called “natural rights,” rather than a privilege, which can be taken away at someone’s whim. Every person is entitled to certain rights—simply by the fact that they are a human being.
