What Are Unalienable Rights?

Unalienable rights are best defined as rights that every person has that the government cannot take away or infringe upon. In America, the Declaration of Independence states that Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness are all unalienable rights. The U.S. Constitution also highlights some unalienable rights through the creation of the amendments. This is why the first ten amendments are known as the Bill of Rights. But other amendments also discuss rights of the American people.
