Dolphins are "Non-Human Persons"

Bravo India! India has joined Costa Rica, Hungary, and Chile in recognizing the Dolphin's right to life and liberty. India stated, in part:
Whereas cetaceans in general are highly intelligent and sensitive, . . .  [dolphins] should be seen as 'non-human persons' and as such should have their own specific rights and is morally unacceptable to keep them captive for entertainment purposes. (bold added)
Unfortunately, Norway, Japan, and Iceland still permit commercial whaling, a savagely cruel practice.
