"You missed 'Infiltrator'"
Is potential for consciousness a basis for moral decisions? If so, should we work out a probabilistic formula that values human life according to its potential, although this would make it easier to justify abortion in impoverished communities?
I think we have to be careful what our moral intuition rejects; after all, this sense is based on an evolved intuition for hygiene. But we also have to allow for gradations of right and wrong. It may indeed be less bad to abort/euthanise/sacrifice a child in poverty than a child who is born with greater potential for fulfilment, but that is very different from saying that it is good.
I suspect that it will be a long time until lab-grown meat tastes as good as cow-grown (it's not easy to mimic the fat marbling process in good beef), and in particular lab-grown steaks will be a much longer time coming. But that's far less noticeable in ground beef, and it's not hard to imagine a future where that can be factory-produced far more cheaply than cattle, with cow steak becoming more of a luxury good.
The consequences for human diet and health may be profound: it makes protein suddenly a lot cheaper and easier to come by, even as changing climates can play merry hell with existing ranching.
