Do you think that there should be an ethical problem with genetically modified organisms?

    I think it depends solely upon the intentions of the one (organization or individual) who is doing the genetic modification… here’s what I mean: If a huge corporation is genetically modifying the AIDs virus so they can create the world most deadly biological weapon and they will sell it to the highest bidder, then clearly there is an ethical problem with this (because ethics is concerned with treating other human beings nicely)…. But if the organization if genetically modifying organisms so they can produce more food (like tomato strains that are hybridized so they produce more tomatoes per plant) and thus they aim to solve the world’s food shortage problems, then there is no ethical problem whatsoever — perhaps there is even ethical MERIT in GM — so long as the intentions are to benefit humankind!
