tell them that it is going against animal rights as chinchillas are social animals and require company from the same species. even ask a vet

Be careful with that line of reasoning... If you parents are really opposed, they could decide to sell it to someone else who already has one that could keep yours company.
Just say you don't want it to get lonely. Keep saying that and behave really nicely and your parents will be more likely to get you one.
