Take Action to Stop Terminator Seeds Demands WCC General Secretary
The general secretary of the World Council of Churches, Rev. Dr
Samuel Kobia, called upon churches and ecumenical partners to take
action to stop "terminator technology". "Applying technology to
design sterile seeds turns life, which is a gift from God, into a
commodity. Preventing farmers from re-planting saved seed will
increase economic injustice all over the world and add to the burdens
of those already living in hardship," stated Kobia.
