I believe it will be illegal to kill a cow for meat in 40 years

I was discussing this article about plant-based meat and Katya suggested that our society could ban the meat industry.  If plant-based or lab-grown meat becomes tastier, healthier, and cheaper that animal products, we will no longer tolerate killing animals for food.

In 2059, I believe it will be illegal to kill a cow for meat in the US.

We already ban the killing on many animals for meat, such as dogs, cats, and horses.  With a viable alternative, why wouldn’t we add cows?  People love cows.

I often ponder, “what will be tomorrow’s next social issue?”  Remember, the first Pride Parade was only 49 years ago.  I think it’s meat.
