A Certain Kind of Dignity

Ah, Switzerland, where the watches are accurate, the chocolate is superb, and even the plants have rights:

For years, Swiss scientists have blithely created genetically modified rice, corn and apples. But did they ever stop to consider just how humiliating such experiments may be to plants?

That's a question they must now ask. Last spring, this small Alpine nation began mandating that geneticists conduct their research without trampling on a plant's dignity.

Equal rights for plants... coming to a progressive party near you!
