That's No Bull

January 22, 2002

Re "Beefy Biotech Wonder Saved From Slaughter," Jan. 17: Herman, the genetically engineered bull, has been saved from the slaughterhouse. Herman is reportedly the first bull to carry a human gene, so he's special. But one day this may become routine.

As the slaughterhouse doors swing open for unwanted transgenic livestock, we are faced with difficult questions. Should canned meat containing human genetic material be so labeled?

Yes, so cannibals will know which brand to buy.

No, because there are no religious proscriptions against eating transhuman foods.
