Government scientists have released a report suggesting that pigs' hearts be used in humans. As with most of these reports, ethics were not addressed, thus avoiding the moral debates associated with animal husbandry. I doubt most of the government bureaucrats thought much about pigs, who by all accounts are quite remarkable animals. I suspect they viewed the pigs as greedy unscrupulous creatures, which may have had a subliminal appeal to the politicians who are always trying to convert voters to their ideology.
