Philosopher: Animal Life can be more valuable than Human Life

Princeton Philosopher Peter Singer:

“Because people are human does not mean that their lives are more valuable than animals. Some nonhuman animals are more like normal human beings than are some seriously damaged members of our own species.”

Quoted in “American Bioethics Advisory Commission Demands Resignation of Princeton Professor” The Wanderer December 8, 1998, p. 11

Singer is a strong supporter of legal abortion.
