Questionaire for Human Right Interaction class

1. Did Buddha mention the right to live in his teaching?
2. Is killing against human right according to Buddhism?
3. Are those people who make commitment to the Eight Fold Paths be considered good in human right?

Hi sotherith,
even though we never see and hear that the teaching of the Buddha mention about the term "right" to any particular thing. However, if we look deeply into his teaching on the first five precepts of the laymen mentioned that every boday must abstain from killing. This is the duty of people not to kill another. Remember, duty creates right. The duty not to kill means that every one have right to protect their life from killing by other.
Though it was not mentioned but if you consider it might come to your mind.
