In Vitro Meat
Will you be their voice?
Lloyd biggle Jr. once stated “Life is life’s greatest gift. Guard the life of another creature as you would your own, because it is your own. On life’s scale of values, the smallest is no less precious to the creature who owns it than the largest.” Think about what that quote means. Is any persons’ life more important than that of an animal? Would you be willing to speak up for them? Are you up for the challenge? You might not be, but we shall see if I can change your mind after reading this.
Humans have long used animals for a variety of purposes. For hundreds of thousands of years, people have hunted for food and clothing. Between 10,000 and 18,000 years ago, humans began to domesticate animals such as dogs,

In doing that, you are not only putting the helpless animals at risk, but you are also putting humans at risk. How one may ask? By testing any type of product on animals that are not made like humans, one is risking the product working on the animal and possibly hurting the human, or it not working on the animal, but it could have possibly worked on the human…but now we might never know, simply because the way they were made is different, and it impacted one in a negative way. It has been estimated that there are 900 to 2,000 new cases every year of animal hoarding in the US, with 250,000 animals falling victim. Over 115 million animals – mice, rats, dogs, cats, rabbits, monkeys, birds, among others – are killed in laboratory experiments worldwide for chemical, drug, food, and cosmetics testing every year. Have you ever heard of in vitro meat? I have, and while doing my research on this topic, I came across some disturbing things. When people send their bovine to the slaughterhouse, they let the male and female bovine roam together. Because they do this, the females will sometimes end up getting impregnated by the males. When the females are then slaughtered, and they find out that she was pregnant, they then send the baby to a special processing part of the slaughter house where they stick a needle into the baby’s heart so they can get something called fetal bovine serum, also known as fetal calf serum. They then use a vacuum pump to get said serum
