RE: Basic underlying right...

I would say the right and the concept of such rights is necessary for a society-species as specialized as ours to continue. We depend upon each other for our very survival. Most of us wouldn't do as well out on our own: we have no fangs, no claws, and very little fur.

To disregard each other's right to live would mean degenerating back into an uncivilized species that is not mutually inter-dependent but in which each individual is a self-sufficient island. Which does nothing to further the species' success, so the opposite happens: we as a group attempt to weed out the aberrants that show such disregard for the group.
