Chimp To Be Declared Human
Animal rights activists are pushing for human rights to be granted to apes... and especially to one chimp in particular named Hiasl. There motives are good - they want to ensure that apes like Hiasl are kept safe and well-provided for. Indeed, the way that apes have been treated in the name of science is appalling. But whether apes will actually be granted human rights is definitely a stretch and it will be interesting to see how this one plays out.
