This article, in the New York Times, is a poster child for the what is wrong with the welfarist branch of the  animal rights movement.   Why ?   Because it perpetuates the welfarist notion that using the animals is not the problem, it's how we use them.   Because it promotes shielding people from the reality that many billions of animals are brought into the world as commodities and slaughtered for our pleasure.  Because it ignores the fact that we do not need to eat animals, no matter how they were slaughtered.   It's still slaughter to the animals themselves.
“People don’t want to know too much,” said Marc Cooper, a senior scientific manager in the farm animals department of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, in London. “It’s hard to sell humane killing as a concept.”
