Lawyer Says Chimps Are People Too

Are chimps people?

Forget transgender bathroom issues.

It’s time to move on to chimps…

Specifically, whether or not they are people just like us.

They are according to lawyer Steve Wise who wants them to be legally recognized as such.

Wise says, “When you are a thing, you are essentially the slave of a person. You don’t count when you go in front of a court; you’re invisible to courts.  To have a non-human animal seen as a person, if only for the writ of habeas corpus to protect their fundamental rights to bodily liberty.”

Are chimps people?

Are animals people?

Is Mr. Wise…not so much so?
