5. No Torture. Nobody has any right to hurt us or to torture us. 

Not only do people have the Right to Life, they have the basic Right to be Free from Torture.  This Human Right was manifest after World War II, when the full disclosure of torture was revealed.  The United States and the founding nations of the UN agreed that torture would never be allowed again in the civilized world.  Straw-man arguments, justifications and "24 Hours" melodrama aside, the United States and other allies led the fight for the Universal Human Right that prohibits the use of torture.
