Another moral issue is that, if we have the power to increase a plant’s resistance to disease, for example in such a way that more food is produced and hunger is alleviated, isn’t there a moral imperative to do so? To use whatever technology is available to reduce human suffering?Ethically, you can take the controversy surrounding Monsanto, a firm that genetically engineered corn seeds so that they would not reproduce seeds at the end of the life cycle of the plant, thus making small farmers, particularly in Latin America, dependent on buying the company’s seeds year after year.  This is an example of genetically engineering plants for profit.Scientifically in terms of ethics, messing with the natural makeup of plants and introducing essentially artificial or man made ones alters the balance of natural evolution.  It interferes with food chains and habitats in ways we do not understand, so if we cannot predict all the negative results of a crop modification, ethically, should we do it?
