    What does preference have to do with anything?
    You expressed your view as if it were factual, rather than opinion.

    Dolphins are more intelligent than fetuses. That's a statement of fact. Whether you think they have more worth or not is largely irrelevant, except, perhaps, to you.

    I had a friend growing up who was so poor that his mother called two slices of bread with nothing between a sandwich.
    not even ketchup?

    where I grew up, we called two slices of bread with ketchup kimchi (j/k)

    he refered to it as a "bread and nothing sandwich". The father work for the "Wholesome Bread Co." driving a truck and he got to bring home some of the day old bread as a benni.

    and a human fetus would have as much intelligence as a dolphin fetus.
    Sorry, but a human fetus is more of a person than a dolphin. A dophin may very well be the most intelligent mammal on the globe, but that doesn't make it deserving of personhood.

    dolpinses be twice as intelligent as many of the "people" who post on this forum and probably more deserving of personhood.

    Plus, cuter. The world would be a better place with more dolphins and fewer humans.

    "For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much - the wheel, New York, wars and so on - whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man - for precisely the same reasons."
