There’s an eth­i­cal debate appar­ently going on about the deeper philo­soph­i­cal impli­ca­tions in cloning meat ani­mals. There are con­cerns about, for instance, humane treat­ment of clones and of meat ani­mals in general.

Barbara Glenn, chief of ani­mal biotech­nol­ogy at the Washington-​​based Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), agreed on the impor­tance of ani­mal wel­fare. “Does the ani­mal mat­ter? The answer is a resound­ing ‘yes,’ ” said Glenn.

It just doesn’t mat­ter so much that killing it and eat­ing it is out of the ques­tion, it seems.

I’ll have my hypocrisy medium-​​well, please.
