The full essay prompt is:

In Inventing Human Rights: A History, Lynn Hunt argues:

“Human rights require three interlocking qualities: rights must be natural (inherent in human beings); equal (the same for everyone); and universal (applicable everywhere). For rights to be human rights, all humans everywhere in the world must possess them equally and only because of their status as human beings”.

Explain whether or not you agree or disagree with this definition and why.  Be as specific, defending your argument by citing a human right that can or should exist.
