    This first one is fine. It could be 'life' or 'lives'. Life would focus more on an individual case and lives more groups of people.

    For the second sentence, it is correct but I'm not sure if it means what you think it does. The way it is written, it means that the reason people should be respected is because of their private life. I think you meant that people should respect others' private life.

    If that's what you meant, this might be better:
    Everyone has the right to have their private life respected.

    "life" should be changed into plural form " lives"

    First one is fine and can be used with life or lives

    Second one, I know what you're meaning as soon as I read it, this one can be said like the following too:

    Everyone has the right to respect for his or her private (and family) life.
    Everyone has the right to respect for his private and family life, his home and his correspondence.
    (These are both taken from: Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and Yourrights.org.uk)

    Every person has the right to have his life respected
    (I saw this one from American Convention on Human Rights)
