I don't see any problem with that. When you consider that currently, meat is produced in that way but with added pain etc, why not? The only objections I can think of are of the "playing God" variety.
On the other hand, there is still the issue of the carcass. If meat was produced pretty much 'on demand' (ie, grown in a lab) there would be no carcass hence less waste...
You would be doing humanity a great favor by (literally) having Beck for dinner, with all its inherent dangers.

Cheese as well, especially anything from Kraft. We can also include Tofu, Tempeh, Natto, Nori, and stuff like Kimchi(which has raw oysters tossed into it to help "seed" the bacteria-process. Yummo).
I'm trying hard to think of an exact similarity--I could compare it to some protein-rich plants, as well as fungi, which we eat regularly. Lots of things are "living" to some point or another, some cheeses even incorporate molds into them somehow--It's just how things are, and how humans eat. I'd see this as just another iteration of our wide diet.
