I believe in freedom of choice, so allowing cloned meat to be sold is a reasonalbe request, however, cloned meat MUST be labeled to allow consumers to choose whether or not they want to subject themselves and their families to a potentially harmful food-source that although currently appears to be consumable without adverse health affects, morally could be questionable as a reasonable choice for Americans. Additionally, taking into account the alarming new information coming to light regarding Bovine Growth Hormone, which for years had been questioned by numerous health advocacy groups and the Canadian and European governments, I beleive the US goverment owes its citizens the choice of not purchasing this genetically altered meat by properly labeling the meat as genetically altered.
