Letter: Congressional Animal Protection Caucus Should Invest in Cultivated Meat

To the editor,

Members of the bipartisan Congressional Animal Protection Caucus should support a massive increase in federal funding for cultivated meat research.




For readers who aren’t familiar with the term, cultivated meat is grown from livestock cells, without slaughter. No other policy, with a reasonable shot of becoming law, has the potential to reduce more animal suffering and death.

While cultivated meat is currently sold in a few high-end restaurants, it faces a number of technological hurdles in order to compete with slaughtered options. Perhaps the most important of these is lowering its cost. This can be achieved with public money for research. I hope the compassionate legislators who make up the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus will prioritize the goal.
