They were sitting there prepared for the birth, with the woman lying in water about two feet deep. Three dolphins approached, pushed everybody away and took over. The dolphins did something that looked like scanning up and down her body—something I have experienced, and which does something to the human system. The woman gave birth with almost no pain or fear.
Needless to say, the human midwives in attendance were fairly shocked. This event opened up the new practice of ‘dolphin midwifery’, which may sound strange, but fits in with the new breed of super-children currently coming into existence. Since this incident in 1979, Igor began a series of experiments with dolphins present at the birth of children.
Children who are born with the help of dolphins, at the cases documented in Russia show, become extraordinary children. Most of them have IQ’s of over 150 (genius range), are extremely emotionally stable, and/or have physically strong bodies; they are superior to other children in one way or another. The Charkovsky team believes that when one is born in the sea assisted by a dolphin, that particular dolphin midwife will come back to the same spot on the baby’s birthday to wait for her/him.
After having a wonderful and positive experience with a water birth, I suggested this for my sisters for their pregnancies and births. The institutionalized social conditioning is so strong that none of my sisters have yet to experience a water birth, much less a dolphin birth.
“Dolphins have an affinity with the baby in the womb and are automatically attracted to pregnant women. They sense when a woman is about to give birth and gather round. They give both the mother and child a sense of protection and safety”

I will quit eating meat when tigers do the same, and dolphins for that matter.
Oh, humans are intelligent, so they can't eat meat? They sure can.
Someone needs to distinguish between intelligence and FEELINGS.
There have been numerous investigations of bottlenose dolphin intelligence. Research on bottlenose dolphins has examined mimicry, use of artificial language, object categorization and self-recognition. Their considerable intelligence has driven interaction with humans. Bottlenose dolphins are popular from aquarium shows and television programs such as Flipper. They have also been trained by militaries to locate sea mines or detect and mark enemy divers. In some areas, they cooperate with local fishermen by driving fish into their nets and eating the fish that escape. Some encounters with humans are harmful to the dolphins: people hunt them for food, and dolphins are killed inadvertently as a bycatch of tuna fishing....
Dolphins exhibit altruistic behaviour toward other sea creatures. On Mahia Beach, New Zealand on 10 March 2008, two pygmy sperm whales, a female and calf, stranded on the beach. Rescuers, including Department of Conservation officer Malcolm Smith, attempted to refloat them four times. Shortly, a playful bottlenose dolphin known to local residents as Moko arrived and, after apparently vocalizing at the whales, led them 200 meters (660 ft) along a sandbar to the open sea, saving them from imminent euthanasia....
The species sometimes shows curiosity towards humans in or near water. Occasionally, they rescue injured divers by raising them to the surface. They also do this to help injured members of their own species. In November 2004, a dramatic report of dolphin intervention came from New Zealand. Four lifeguards, swimming 100 meters (330 ft) off the coast near Whangarei, were approached by a shark (reportedly a great white shark). Bottlenose dolphins herded the swimmers together and surrounded them for forty minutes, preventing the shark from attacking, as they slowly swam to shore.[95

They're people and have the right to the highest protection any cosmic law and earth law could give for their homes, livelihood, sancitiy and purity and conditions of their water world, ie no toxins and pollutions and nuclear needed thank you very much, and to not be murdered or eaten by us.

Jamie is among only a handful of children worldwide to be taught how to copy dolphins by Californian Daniel Kish, who is himself blind.
Mr Kish calls his echo-location skill "flash-sonar". He said: "It provides one with information of a fair amount of detail at distances of dozens of metres."
Eventually Jamie, who gets around using a cane, should be able to detect buildings from 100 yards.
Corrected for body size, dolphins have larger brains than any primates except man, and the same surface folds found in human brains. They also have a cerebral cortex and neocortex that approach the size of those found in humans.
Previous studies have shown that dolphins can recognise themselves in mirrors and even learn a simple symbol-based language. The also have distinct personalities and can cooperate and learn from each other.
IT IS now possible to hear plants scream. Physicists at the University of Bonn have developed a device that listens to the stress responses of household plants. They hope it will reveal what makes so many geranium seedlings die after the long trip to Germany from their nurseries in the Mediterranean. When plants are under stress, because of drought or exposure to salt, ozone and cold, they emit ethylene gas. The experimental device, built by researchers at Bonn's Institute of Applied Physics, excites ethylene molecules with an infrared laser. The laser beam is "chopped" or interrupted 2000 times per second. Each time the beam excites the ethylene molecules, they release their energy in the form of a tiny shock wave in the surrounding atmosphere. These 2000-hertz vibrations are amplified with a resonance tube, similar to a small organ pipe, then detected with a sensitive microphone. Higher levels of ethylene ...
Can someone explain why all these animal lovers don't feel the pain of plants and trees when they get chopped up?
