Chicken or Fetus?

Here's a little sample of what to look forward to as the "animal rights" movement gains steam:

"But there was also Rockville teacher Peter Markham, who had raised a skeptical question during the Q and A: 'Should an adult chicken have more rights than a human embryo?'"

"After hedging -- 'I haven't studied chickens' -- Wise says that if the chicken has more 'appreciation for life' than the human embryo, then yes, the chicken should have more rights."

"After hearing Wise out, Markham's more convinced: 'I mean, he doesn't want to give earthworms rights. I agree, you got to make a start somewhere.'"

Thank goodness they cleared that up!
