Most people associate the words “genetic engineering” with GMO corn and soy crops, Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller and the anti-GMO movement’s hard-fought (but ultimately lost) campaign for GMO labeling laws.
It’s time to stop allowing—and funding—the dangerous and illegal activity of genetically engineering viruses, under the guise of “biodefense,” in the U.S. and worldwide.
The debate over the origin of the COVID-19 virus is heating up. We may never get a straight answer from either the U.S. or Chinese government on the origins of this particular virus.
But there’s no refuting this fact: Genetic engineering has long played a key role in U.S. and international biowarfare. Allowing scientists to conduct experiments with genetic engineering/gene editing and viruses—especially the type of “gain of function” experimentation used to make viruses as lethal as possible to humans—is sheer madness.
As scientists warn in this recent article on GM Watch, sooner or later, accidents happen:
“In their view, it is now ‘100 seconds to midnight’ and humanity is in its greatest moment of peril.”
