It is entirely possible that future humans/aliens will view us as barbarians who denied basic rights to persons based on their species. We will be considered even worse than we view racism among human races from the past. And they will be right.
I dont think it is possible to give same rights to animals. But discussion about these things is important, because if we cannot even answer basic question such as why do humans deserve rights and animals dont, then by what measure can we judge someone who arbitrarily chooses to deny these rights even to humans?
Speciesism is hardly a justifiable position in the end.

We have got more important issues to spend money and time on than trying to establish human rights for poor dolphins. How does that even related to science or research?
