Explanation: This is used in the U.S., but it may or may not be the same thing. These are rights that are held to be natural rights that every human being has; they are not granted by any law but are recognized as being inherent.
Is it the same thing or is it a lesser standard? That I don't know.
"Unrepealable" as Bill suggests would basically mean that once granted, they cannot be taken away. To me, "Inalienable" rights have always been there.
Maybe we can get a good discussion going here.
