Letter to the Editor: GMO Initiative
EDITOR: The California Democratic Party has just announced that it officially endorses Proposition 37, which would require labeling for most genetically modified foods sold in stores within the state.
Though this is a very important endorsement, it is vital that people understand that this initiative has nothing to do with political parties and is about protecting our rights as American citizens and, in particular, as California residents to our freedom of choice.
There are many Republican officials who endorse this effort, and Republican voters who support this measure are also encouraged to contact their elected representatives to express their support and ask that they add their name to this proposition.
This issue does not pay attention to party lines and any illusion of separation should be erased as we work together for a common goal, for that is one thing that has been so dearly missing in today's politics.
Let's make sure we remember that this is an ethical issue and keep the politics out of it as much as possible.
Join us today to protect our freedom of choice as Americans and our right to know what's in our food.
