Human Rights are the fundamental rights and freedoms that belong to everyone, everywhere throughout their lifespan, by virtue of being human. They apply regardless of a person’s thoughts, beliefs or behaviours and cannot be permanently removed... though there are some circumstances under which they can be restricted, including when a person commits a crime or when they are detained under mental health legislation.
