I thank you for your many man hours devoted to this topic. But I believe that consumers have a right to know through some mechanism (labeling at the least ) that what they are consuming is from a cloned animal. This country is based on the principle of freedom and we as consumers should have the freedom to eat or not eat what we choose. We have constraints and testing in place to test for many types of ailments such as mad cow disease. Why would we not be able to know how the animals we eat are being produced?
