Anything that doesn't generate a human-esque brain leaves the rest of the animal as simply animal and there is no human rights issue.

Start mucking about with human brain structures and we are having issues that require serious consideration - although my view is that if it has a reasonable IQ and can suffer we should try to avoid making it do so - without its consent.

Much like loqueelviento and KJinAsia, I am very worried when people start to propose laws that tell us what we CAN do rather than what we CANNOT. The implication being that our rights are handed out by a generous government rather than realising that all laws reduce our freedoms and we should be very wary about creating more of the bloody things.
