“There’s no rational basis for saying that a human being has special rights. A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy. They’re all animals.”, — Ingrid Newkirk, Washingtonian magazine, Aug 1986

Regan writes: “Animals, it is true, lack many of the abilities humans possess. They can’t read, do higher mathematics, build a bookcase, or make baba ghanoush. Neither can many human beings, however, and yet we don’t say – and shouldn’t say – that they (these humans) therefore have less inherent value, less of a right to be treated with respect, than do others. It is the similarities between those human beings who most clearly, most uncontroversially have such value – the people reading this, for example – it is our similarities, not our differences, that matter most.”
