I fully support humane treatment of animals, but when we try to extend human rights to animals, we don't raise them to our level, we lower ourselves to the level of animals. This quote, in particular, got my attention:
Philosophers Peter Singer and Paola Cavalieri founded the Great Ape Project in 1993, arguing that "non-human hominids" like chimpanzees, gorillas, orang-utans and bonobos should enjoy the right to life, freedom and not to be tortured.Peter Singer would allow the killing of small children and infanticide.
Apes are more important than babies?
To some, yes.
For me, this is frightening.
