    I would simply say "given".
    The beginning of your sentence doesn't sound right though.

    "... Act gives every ..."
    "... Act has given every ..."

    Your first three suggestions are very paternalistic, or patronising.
    Secure (it would have to be ...secured for ...) suggests a hard-fought campaign for that legislation.
