If Darwinism is true, then there can be no such thing as "rights." The reason that is is because Darwinism, at its core, precludes the possibility that there can be supernatural (or non-material) entities which affect natural (or material) entities directly.
Consequently, that means non-material things such as rights cannot exist in a Darwinian worldview because all there is is matter and motion. Since rights are neither made of matter, nor are they objects subject to the laws of physics, rights cannot be ascertained by any method of discovery in Darwinism. Thus, the notion that individuals have rights to life, liberty, property, etc. is moot within a Darwinian outlook of the world.
So, anyone who considers himself a Darwinist cannot argue for rights as a basic necessity of human existence, in principle. If he does, then he is being inconsistent with the metaphysical demands of his worldview, and those demands cannot allow any invisible quality nor entity to have an instance in human experience. We're all just conglomerations of subatomic particles, which, themselves, are not sentient.
