Do You Feel That the Pros Outweigh the Cons for the Use of GMO’s?

In general, yes. I do feel like it is better to focus on the pros and cons of an individual genetically engineered product than to make broad statements endorsing or condemning GMOs as a group. One product may have completely different pros or cons than another product. More information on some of the various types of traits that have been developed with genetic engineering can be found here.
