Your description is circular.  "X is a right because it would be wrong otherwise."  It doesn't say anything.

There must be a reason we have rights other than it's a 'good thing'.

Why?  Eventually, all over the world, everyone will have all the rights they deserve, and that will be a very good thing.

Some rights mean more to some people than other.  I, for instance, thing freedom of religion is somewhat overdone.  Others think it's a good thing.  They think it would be wrong for them to be denied that right. There's no other reason.
