I understand the first four ones but the last one is kinda flawed, you can have your rights been taken away (e.g. free speech in china) even if you never infringed on another persons rights in your life.

By that logic “Don’t like sex? Don’t have it.” is also flawed because someone can rape you.

Think this is fine if you apply it to just the US.

Rape isn’t sex.

I don’t think rape is rape without sex.

Don’t like killing people? Don’t kill.

But uf someone else like killing, don’t takwe away his righs!

Your argument is flawed!

Don’t like being killed? Don’t kill.
Killing is not a human right. If you’re only vaguely religious you know that there’s only one that’s got the “right” to take life.
Whatever your alignment, common decency and mutual respect is a pre-requisite of a functioning community.

Or you can believe in the anarchy of life and death, but don’t complain if someone else interfers with your life.

Playing devil’s advocate here.

Some would consider abortion killing. And certain extreme (and rare) cases of it would probably qualify.

Saying abortion means nothing: that practice depends on time, conditions, will and one’s own personal moral: we have to stop thinking at abortion as one concept. Let people do their choices and suffer the results.

That’s nice.

Personally I prefer oversight and for certain restrictions (late term where the mother’s life is not in danger, for instance) to be put in place.

But smoking weed is human right, amirite?
And having sex? Oh, and abortion?

I think the point is that they SHOULD be rights. Doing something that only effects you and no one else, gay marriage should be legal but because some assholes in this country can’t get over the “ick” factor, it’s not. Pretty stupid country sometimes…

I agree in spirit. Not sure I’d phrase it like this, though.

Since when, exactly, is doing a drugs a “right”?

Try telling smokers they can’t smoke and see what happens.

Because we have the right to do whatever we want to ourselves as long is it doesn’t harm others.

yeah, like abortion!

Better stop getting haircuts if you value every bundle of cells that much, then.

Hair’s not alive unless you’re a gorgon.

That was a dumb comment, Alec.

There’s a difference between living and dead tissue. Fetuses fit in the former category.
