Despite most of us being born into developed countries, we should always remember that things are the way they are because we, as a people, made them that way.

Value the things you have (healthcare/freedom/freely having children) --> There is always someone out there trying to take them away.

I'm not exactly sure what is meant by 'right' or 'privilege' in this context. Are we talking about whether the listed things are natural rights, or whether they ought to be legal rights? It does make a difference.

Same answers as Scuba. I also debated whether having a child is a right or a privilege. Finally I agree that it's a right....but "raising one" is a privilege, so if you suck as parents, then that privilege should be taken away from you.

I agree with all of Scuba's answers, pretty easy to answer as their obvious.
The "obvious" answers aren't necessarily the right answers.

If anyone has the right to the fruits of their own labor, then they have the right to own property. All people have the right to the fruits of their own labor. Therefore, all people have the right to own property.
