Human dignity refers to the inherent humanness of each member of the human family. It recognizes and reflects the equal worth of each person and attaches to each person equally, regardless of gender, race, social or political status, talents, merit, or any other differentiator. It is not an attribute or an interest to be protected or advanced, like liberty or equality or a house or free speech, but exists anywhere there is a person, or perhaps two, whether or not it is named or recognized in law. It is what makes us all human, and what confirms the equal worth of human beings.
