Wait Till He Wants a Driver’s License

Animal rights advocates want a chimpanzee declared a person. This comes from Austria where they want a 26-year-old chimp to be able to receive donations and have the right to own property.

If this happens, the chimp would have more rights than a baby in the womb here in America.

According to the article, the Great Ape Project, based in Seattle, also wants to extend “fundamental moral and legal protections” to apes.

I guess the ideas in Seattle and Austria are like evolution. We have people coming from apes and apes becoming people. I am in awe of the great minds that come up with these things.

What’s next? How about extending the right for people and apes to marry? I guess that would make as much sense as same sex marriage.

We shouldn’t be surprised at anything.
