“Pain-Free” Animals

Given that factory farming causes unimaginable pain to animals, Adam Shriver, a philosopher at Washington University in St Louis, Missouri, contends that genetically engineered pain-free animals are the most acceptable alternative for those who want to continue eating meat. Progress in neuroscience and genetics in recent years makes this a possibility and there is already research in that area taking place.

Although one day we might be able to raise "pain-free" animals, the fact that they are being manipulated just to fit our desire for profit and taste, makes factory farming unethical and dishonoring to God. Moreover, God's farmed animals are capable of feeling fear and joy, and they desire to exercise their God-given instincts, which they cannot do in factory farms. The most God-honoring behavior would be to treat them with mercy and compassion; and therefore, do our best to avoid exploiting them.
