I have a consistent and sound biophilia (an strong commitment for respect for biological diversity and the whole natural world due to wonder and acknowledgemnt of our moral dutiness to preserve it) but animal paradigms in scientific research are needed, and should to be conciously disscus among the interest parties.

Neverthless, although there are voices against providing basic rights (right to life, right of freedom, and banning torture)i consider that great apes are entitled to rights (rights confered [pasive subjects] rather than active subjects exercising rights).

But in this philosophical debate, with social political and cultural branches, there is a risk to slippery-slope arguments. Why apes and not ants becasue myrmecologists are sure that ants exhibit intelligent behaviour too.
