It's the FDA's job to protect Americans, not expose us to insects bred in science labs that could have unknown effects on our ecosystems and public health. I know that if enough people sign my petition, the FDA will prioritize the needs of kids like mine

Update on earlier petition. Oxitec, a UK-based company has been trying to conduct an open-air experiment with genetically modified mosquitoes in Key West. It may soon go ahead if it hasn't done so already. There must be an outcry to stop it at once!
