    we have no rights.

    However,
    within any group of humans,
    the members of the group
    tend to feel
    that each member should be given,
    by the rest of the group,
    certain things:
    physical needs,
    such as food,
    and emotional needs,
    such as respect.

    We expect members over a certain age
    to work for food and such,
    but we feel that all members must have enough.

    The group has the responsibility
    to give each member
    those things.

    But the group gives,
    and the group can take away,
    or simply fail to carry out,
    effectively,
    those responsibilities.

    That's the reality.

    This can be expressed
    as rights of each group member,
    but it's actually the responsibility
    of the rest of the group.

    Bringing a child into the world at this point in history is a crime, the crime of child endangerment.
