ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


Rights are things that everyone should have. There are many types of rights that are important for different people. All people have the right to life, which means no one can take away your life without a good reason. All people also have the right to not be treated differently because of things like their race, gender, or religion. Everyone has the right to think, speak and live freely and to have their own opinion, even if others may not agree. All people have the right to a fair trial and to not be punished without good reason. Finally, everyone has the right to clean water, food, a safe place to live, and medical care if they are sick.
