I like how many of pro-GMO supporters often skip over GMO's effect on plants found in nature. Seeds from GMO plants will eventually reach non-GMO plants and if they have an pesticide in them that could mean deaths of vulnerable species of insects

Exactly correct. This I do believe is already happening purely because that is what evolution does. Some of the weeds are becoming resistant to herbicides which entails increased usage and contamination of crops. The idea of GMO cross fertilization is also a clear and present danger, with huge potential consequences.

I personally love how pro GMO lackey's try and say that labeling is irrelevant / expensive / uninformative / unfair etc ad nauseam.
