Think cattle herds suing ranchers or lab animals suing universities — not to improve care but to liberate from all human use.
Bioethicist Wesley Smith examines the meaning of the term “personhood” and its implications for human rights.
This kind of thinking drives me nuts. First, we don’t treat animals as mere things or as being akin to inanimate objects.
The issue is known as “animal standing,” and activists want to let beasts sue in court to “break the species barrier.”
“Animal standing” is really a Trojan horse to allow animal rights extremists to seek court rulings enforcing their own ideology.
