GM has the potential to bring both benefit and harm. The Animal Justice Party (AJP) will therefore create policy regarding genetic manipulation on a case-by-case basis, drawing on the value base of kindness, equality, rationality and non-violence to assess the merits of each case. We seek regulation that prevents misuse and promotes social advancements. We will not hesitate to condemn GM when used in ways that harm animals. We will support GM where it removes existing forms of animal exploitation, improves human health, creates nutritious and sustainable crops, or helps protect our environment.
