The National Constitutional Court of Germany has issued a very interesting verdict on German Legislation governing GMOs and use of transgenetics in Agriculture. Farmers will be held responsible for possible damages should they choose to use GMOs.

Quote:
…..In its possibility of deliberately creating changes in genetic makeup,
genetic engineering intervenes in the elementary structures of life. It
is extremely difficult or impossible to reverse the consequences of such
intervention. Once genetically modified material has been released into
the environment, it is difficult or impossible to restrict its spread.

      I appreciate your dilemma. If you research this topic on the internet you will find that a lot of articles have been written on this court’s decision regarding GMO. Unfortunately most of them do not bother to point to the ‘real text’, which coming from a court is a bit hard to fully understand since they do take care in the wording. I would hope that the direct quote from the court’s decision is pretty clear by itself though..
