Two Chimpanzees have been Given Greater Rights than an Unborn Child in New York

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The left has long fought to deny the right to life to babies still in the womb. Democrat National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has even recently stated that government should not come between a woman and her doctor when it comes to abortion, even if that means killing a 7 lb baby moments before delivery. Despite this fight against the right to life, the far-left group The Nonhuman Rights Project has fought to give legal rights to nonhuman species. Now, thanks to a no doubt progressive judge in New York, they are one step closer to making that happen.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Hercules and Leo are chimpanzees and lab animals at Stony Brook University. On Monday, a judge basically gave the animals constitutional rights by ruling that they are covered by writ of habeas corpus. This gives the chimpanzees the ‘right’ to challenge whether they are being held as prisoners. With this ruling, the Nonhuman Rights Project says that the court has determined the chimpanzees, Hercules and Leo, to be ‘persons.’

This move speaks volumes about the current state of affairs in America in general and the State of New York specifically. Two chimpanzees have been granted personhood by a judge in New York. Meanwhile, the New York State Assembly recently passed a bill that would give doctors the legal ability to shoot unborn babies, even in the third trimester, through the heart with poison to kill them.
