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 behavours and cannot be permanently removed, though there are som circumstances under which they can be restricted, including when a person commits a crime or when they are detained under mental health legislation. Human rights are based on values such as dignity, respect, equality and authonomby and are enshrined in law.
