    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    The rights of a dolphin do not infringe on the rights of an adult human. The hypothetical rights of a fetus (which, I might add, has less intellectual capability than a full-grown dolphin), DO infringe on the rights of an adult human.

    Thus the distinction.

    No, plain and simple. Also I don't see a reason why dolphins shouldn't be hunted, as long as there are protections in place that makes sure they don't become extinct.

    What the ****? You would like us to hunt a sentient species? Your one of the people who is going to be responsible for a full-scale war when we make first contact with aliens.
