"Dead people don't have rights"

Ever since reading Alasdair MacIntyre's After Virtue I've been convinced that the whole idea of human rights is not a Christian concept at all. I've also had a hard time explaining the reasoning without simply urging people to read MacIntyre's whole book. Now, I'm happy to find that Finishing Well sums up the basic argument in one sentence.

Update: The more I think about it, the more it looks like AV and FW are dealing with different issues. Both are nevertheless valid and worth reading.
