Declaration of Independence
The Declaration of Independence is still used in our government today. For example, the document states that all men are created equal; therefore, all adult citizens may vote. The unalienable rights cannot be given or taken away in today's society. A great example of these unalienable rights in america is the right for a woman to abort a baby. Although this is a huge controversy over liberty of the woman and life of the baby it is still an example of unalienable rights in society today.
