Raesly 1 Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence, “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. These are the rights of all people in the United States to enjoy and live their lives by, but have they been that way for all people throughout history? While people are supposed to be able to enjoy all three of these rights, the only ones that can be considered natural are life and the pursuit of happiness. Liberty has been overlooked throughout history with incidents such as slavery, Serfdom and concentration camps. Life is a right all people are born with. Everyone has the right to live on this earth no matter what race they are, what beliefs they have, or where they are from. Dating as far back as Adam and Eve, God has allowed all people to live on this Earth and this right has been true throughout history. While life can be taken away, the right to life itself will always hold true. The pursuit of happiness as a natural right is a little more complicated.
