No one can be "refused their rights" unless you mean cases where an individual decides to break the law. Rights don't fall from the sky. They are set out by a society's legal/political systems.

And if you mean "human rights" that's also an arbitrary concept (one that I support). The modern conception of human rights was statrted based on Judeo-Christian beliefs.
