Swiss experts say plants have rights too

A report by the government-appointed Federal Ethics Committee on Non-Human Biotechnology (ECNH) described interfering with plants without a valid reason as "morally inadmissible".

The committee looked at ethical views held on plants and issues of how their use could be justified.

t said that from a wider perspective, "all action involving plants for the preservation of the human race was morally justified"....

Well, that last part is certainly reassuring.
