This is sort of an alternative to the 'would you eat cultured meat' question. What if we could engineer animals without conciousness (sentience)? Would it be cruelty free? Would you eat it? Example: http://www.wired.com/underwire/2012/02/headless-chicken-solution/ I find it terrifying in a way. Especially if the solution is just lobotomizing live chickens. That's like killing it twice to me.
