  1. My issue with saying new gene editing techniques are “not like traditional GMOs” is that it keeps the misconception that traditional genetic engineering is bad in itself. So what’s stopping antis from saying CRISPR is bad as well, on the same irrational grounds? They’re already doing it; Greenpeace is lobbying the EU to have New Breeding Techniques regulated under existing GMO legislation, which would effectively nip them in the bud for the entire EU.
