From the BBC: Breast milk ice cream goes on sale in Covent Garden
A restaurant in London’s Covent Garden is serving a new range of ice cream, made with breast milk.
The dessert, called Baby Gaga, is churned with donations from London mother Victoria Hiley, and served with a rusk and an optional shot of Calpol or Bonjela…
“Some people will hear about it and go yuck – but actually it’s pure organic, free-range and totally natural.”
And, we could add, its production should please animal welfare and animal rights advocates, since it involves no indentured servitude on the part of animals.
My question, here, is roughly the same as my question about synthetic meat: beyond the “yuck” factor, is there any actual ethical objection to eating ice cream made with human milk?
