Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) has introduced an amendment to the 2013 farm bill that would, for the first time ever, demonstrate Senate support for labeling of foods with genetically engineered ingredients.

We must hurry - the Senate will start voting on farm bill amendments any day now! Make sure your senators hear from you before they vote - take action right now.

Tell your senators to support Boxer's right-to-know amendment to the 2013 farm bill!

Genetically engineered ingredients can be found in most of America's processed foods. About 88 percent of field corn is genetically engineered. Not to mention that 90 percent of all soybeans and more than 90 percent of canola seeds grown in the U.S. come from genetically engineered seeds.

There are few issues that unite Americans as much as their desire to know what's in their food. More than 1 million Americans have petitioned the Food and Drug Administration with that demand - the most in FDA history. Polling shows that 93 percent of consumers want to know if their food contains genetically engineered ingredients.

This is our chance to show Senate support for labeling foods with genetically engineered ingredients. Take action today!

This is a must for me! I would be overjoyed and probably sick to my stomach just to know what genettically engineered foods I do eat. I'm very, very careful, but I know there are some things that just sneak in on the list. This should be a law in all states, everyone deserves the right know what they are putting in their own bodies and that of their family!

Here, again, we have another situation, where we need a woman to make the decision about which men don't appear to care. Boehner and his crew can't make up their minds, what they want to do, other than disagree.
Obviously, the obstructionist Republicans are in significant need of female intervention.
The _power & control_ GOP males had better start placing their female counterparts, into more influential positions.
The time for a woman President is NOW.

Previously signed, and going to a gigantic protest against Monsanto downtown tlater this morning.
Unfortunately here's some bad news..

"The Senate on Thursday overwhelmingly rejected an amendment that would allow states to require labeling of genetically modified foods.Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont said his amendment was an attempt to clarify that states can require the labels, as several legislatures have moved toward putting such laws into place. The Vermont house and the Connecticut senate voted this month to make food companies declare genetically modified ingredients on their packages.The Senate rejected the amendment on a 71-27 vote, during debate on a wide-ranging, five-year farm bill that includes generous supports for crops like corn and soybeans that are often genetically modified varieties. Senators from farm states that use a lot of genetically modified crops strongly opposed the amendment, saying the issue should be left up to the federal government and that labels could raise costs for consumers." :-((
Thanks for trying Arwen.
