I am outraged by the fact of using animal clones as food. It has been my assessment that these animals are unfit to be eaten or even to be alive.... however some may disagree. That should not give you the right to choose for the American people. By this I mean labeling should go on the package to allow consumers to pick and choose the meat they eat, not by a few scientists that say it's o.k..It seems to me that they are always changing their assessment anyhow on what's safe and what isn't. Also you guys just got through saying and arguing about the fact of whether or not sheep are safe to be eaten and I thought Dolly was the first animal to be cloned. If you don't have enough information on sheep being safe, how do you have information on any other cloned animal? It would stand to reason that people should choose, however, I believe that cloning is unethical and making it an unlabeled food criminal.
