Three Meanes Of Moral Rights
2. Three (3) features of moral rights are that moral rights are natural; they are discovered not created. They are equal; no injustice in how they are shared. Moral rights cannot be taken away from an individual without consent and they are the same; they are universal no matter where a person is moral rights are the same.
3. Moral rights are related, an individual’s rights can be defined in terms of their duties others have towards that individual. Duties are moral obligations. For instance, a person has a moral right to do something then it is the moral duty of the other person not to interfere. Moral rights provide a person to be free to choose to do whatever they choose to do. Moral rights are justified by moral standards that most people acknowledge. Moral rights advocacy was first championed by a German philosopher; Immanuel Kant who many feel was the central figure of modern philosophy. Kant first expressed that from a moral perspective we are all equal thus he maintained that we all have worth or dignity that society must respect. This belief was categorized by Kant as Practical Imperative which interpreted is to “Act to treat humanity, whether yourself or another, is an end-in-itself”
