Responsibility/Solidarity

One is responsible when –and as far as – she responds for the consequences of her own actions and decisions. Solidarity, a word of French origin that entered English language usage during the first half of the last century, evokes a community or common sharing of interests, needs, aspirations, or sympathies.
Respect for human dignity

The respect of human dignity is that there are no strangers to us among those who suffer, be it from poverty, marginalization, hunger, illness, pain, or impending death. All human beings have the same value because the value of any human being is incalculable. The basis for this respect is simply that we are all human beings.
Reproductive rights

Reproductive rights refer to rights in the areas of abortion, birth control and family planning. Some of those who oppose the use of the term claim that such legal protection, especially in regards to abortion, is an abuse of the term "right" and amount to a "right to kill the innocent". They also note that such rights are not guaranteed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and have little or no precedent in human history.
Civil and political rights

Civil and political rights are those legal rights granted to citizens by the government. Examples include the right to vote and anti-discrimination laws. Civil rights movements usually want equal protection of the laws for minorities, as well as new laws outlawing discrimination and its vestiges.
Free circulation of information

Freedom of expression is a universal human right. It is the right to freely say what you please, as well as the related right to hear what others have stated. Recently, it has been commonly understood as encompassing full freedom of circulation of information, including the freedom to create and distribute movies, pictures, songs, dances, and all other forms of expressive communication.
Justice

“Justice” is a concept involving the fair and moral treatment of all persons, especially in law. It is often seen as the continued effort to do what is "right."
Social and Economical and Cultural Rights

Respect for social rights. Present, respect, and clarify the goals and values of society, along with those that the individual has to lead his/her life without interference, but with consideration of the rights, social traditions, aspirations, and positive conditions required for the development of all. These are: support, respect and diffusion of nationalism, democracy, general freedoms, especially those of expression and access to information about occurrences such as abuses of justice, denials of human rights, and abuses of power.

The Cultural Rights are rights of persons, not as abstract individuals reduced to their rational ( ultimate ground of the first generation) and biological (ultimate ground of the second generation) constituents, but as pertaining to minorities whose vision of the realization of these rights is a historically specific mode of being in the world, i.e. cultural forms and symbol.
