Some types of Veal used to be made with what was basically cow abortions. When the cow was about a week away from giving birth, the farmer would cut out the calf and kill it for the meat. Because the calf hadn't used it's muscles fully yet, the meat was very tender and highly prized.
Wish i didn't know that, it's so wrong on so many levels.
