What is done in the lab today is really no different.

Yes, it is. We didn't have Monsanto at the begining of human history engineering Round-Up into the DNA of seeds

Unless one subscribes to the OWS style belief that Monsanto is the personification of a big, evil, capitalist corporation making profit at the worlds expense,

Monsanto is one corporation, that really deserves it's negative reputation.

Round Up is being found in mother’s milk due to GMO corn.

There is a difference between grafting different plants together to create desirable taste and texture of food, and manipulating a plant’s genetic code to enable it to uptake herbicide and pesticide without “harming” the plant.

I also have issue with Monsanto suing farmers for using GMO seeds when they initially never planted such GMO crops, but cross pollination bled into their fields.

I also have an issue with terminator seeds.

I want a choice between buying corn chips that are non GMO, or GMO. I would choose the former if I had the choice. I would be willing to pay more and that is my choice.

I do not see it as a “Left-Right” issue, in so much as usually the left takes the anti-corporate stance. But “truth in labeling” is not an evil left wing, or right wing issue in my humble opinion, is is an issue of consumer choice.
