What counts as an absolute right – a right to life? In some countries the death penalty is still used as a form of punishment. Healthcare professionals may decide to withdraw life-supporting treatment from a patient whose quality of life is considered extremely poor. It could be argued that there is no right to a life of intolerable suffering. There are also situations where rights conflict, for example, the right to life and the right to self-defence. How and who should determine which right should predominate in such situations?

There is a difference between positive and negative rights. A negative right implies a right to non-interference, for example a right not to be killed. In contrast, positive rights impose positive duties of support or assistance on others. A positive right to life imposes the duty to provide proper healthcare and ensure that life is saved. It is only the person with the right who can demand that the duty is performed or who can waive that right. There are very few absolute rights. An absolute right is one that may not be justifiably overridden in any circumstances.
