The moral relationship of human species with non-human species is slowly evolving with the fact that non-human species can think, reason, and possess many of the same emotional attributes as humans. There is no reason to conclude that characteristics thought to be uniquely human have any value that allows to use them as a non-arbitrary justification for exploiting non-humans. Some humans will have the same deficiency that are attributed to non-humans and although the deficiency may be relevant for some purposes, it may not be relevant to whether such humans should be exploited. Still there is a lack of a satisfactory approach in the relationship of humans with non-humans.
