"There are only a few hundred apes in Spain,"
Many more, I'm afraid.

This is madness. Apes are not the equivalent of humans in intelligence and reasoning (except perhaps Spanish leftists).

This is why I'm a Second Amendment supporter. If the great apes had and could use firearms, they'd have rights.

"Peter Singer"

Isn't he the guy who favors legalized bestiality?

From his Wiki entry:

"He favors a 'journey' model of life, which measures the wrongness of taking a life by the degree to which doing so frustrates a life journey's goals. So taking a life is less wrong at the beginning, when no goals have been set, and at the end, when the goals have either been met or are unlikely to be accomplished. The journey model is tolerant of some frustrated desire, explains why persons who have embarked on their journeys are not replaceable, and accounts for why it is wrong to bring a miserable life into existence. Although sentience puts a being within the sphere of equal consideration of interests, only a personal interest in continuing to live brings the journey model into play. This model also explains the priority that Singer attaches to interests over trivial desires and pleasures. For instance, one has an interest in food, but not in the pleasures of the palate that might distinguish eating steak from eating tofu, because nutrition is instrumental to many goals in one's life journey, whereas the desire for meat is not and is therefore trumped by the interest of animals in avoiding the miseries of factory farming."

What a fruit loop.

Incredible. Peter Singer, who does not support the right to life of an eight-week old child with spina bifida, is willing to protect a f---ing ape.

WTF is wrong with this world...?

Or is this a different Peter Singer? Either way, it's out of control.

The move in a country better known for bull-fighting would follow a string of social reforms which have converted Spain from one of Europe's most conservative nations into a liberal trailblazer bunch of pendejos grandes.

There, much better.

I guess if they are in the "community of equals" with humans they should get to claim government benefits? Has anyone started a voter registration program for them? While this is Spain, it has implications for the USA.

Since the Democrats in the USA are looking to the prisons, minor children, and illegal aliens to join their voter rolls, how long until they start banging on the doors of the monkey house? I mean, if it comes from Europe, its got to be a good idea...
