Inalienable rights by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  Inalienable rights are (a) legal and moral entitlements (b) belonging to a created human being which are not bestowed by law, custom, or belief. They are beyond the control of governments because they are given by God to every individual at conception, and only God can take them away. How shall we use them?
