IMO B. Correct tense and properly connects the two objectives of fight with "and"

B is correct. As "would" should be used instead of "will"
Also, for human rights and the rule of law is correctly parallel

+1B

OE
A – The second "that" before "the rule of law....." does not make sense and creates an incomplete sentence
C - Use of past perfect tense "had" is incorrect since there are no two things taking place at different times in the past. Since the sentence is in the past tense the correct word is "would" and not "will"
D – "that" is missing before "she would...."
E – "has told" is in the present tense so the correct word should be "will" and not "would". The "as well" at the end of the sentence is redundant

:-D
