Re: ''Cloned Pigs for Human Transplantation'' The Dangers? (Amaranth Rose)
Different words, same meaning. What is the difference between growing pigs for replacement parts and growing pigs for food? What is the difference between cross pollinating plants to get larger harvests of edible biomass and modifying pig genes to get a larger harvest of transplantable components? What is the difference between creating life in a test-tube where no life was previously present and creating life in a garden where only weeds prevailed?
The difference is only a grey line. Some draw it between vegetable and animal. Some draw it between animal and animal products. Some draw it between man and animal. Some don't draw it at all. Few draw it below vegetable/animal because, at that point, their life expectance decreases dramatically.
