    A note on why this show has a content warning, and one – about animal experiments – that you won’t find in the DVD store.

    Much of the research into lab meat uses animal experiments. Some groups, eg IVU-Sci, have objections to even citing animal experiments, so I added a content advisory as a courtesy to them.

    All sorts of interventions in human and nonhuman animals alike can be performed without killing, hurting or harming a sentient being in any way. Yes, there are important issues of consent here
    (cf. )
    But if cells from a biopsy performed for a legitimate medial purpose, i.e. to help a human or nonhuman patient, are later used to save the lives of millions, I think one’s moral scruples can start to become a bit theological. Real life is messy.

    Would you eat in-vitro human meat? Would you eat in-vitro pig meat?
    I believe that if my answer to this question is different if replacing the word “human” by “pig” then it is a speciste approach.

    I think its great that vegans don’t want to eat this! They are already doing the best they can for the world. It’s about converting the meat eaters.

    No matter how you slice it (pun intended) “lab meat” harms sentient beings. Whether we’re talking about the individual animals used to procure tissue from, or the fact that the very idea of trying to produce meat in any fashion is abhorrently speciesist and anthropocentric. Non-human animals are sentient beings who value their lives and deserve, as do human animals, to thrive and flourish free from exploitation and oppression. “Lab meat” is another example of trying to sell us with the oxymoron of humane exploitation.
