Resumo

This article explores the issue of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) both in the socio-ecological and the ethical-theological approaches. Concentrating on Pope Francis’ view of integral ecology, it testifies that genetic manipulation by itself is not condemned, but scientific research reveals they are not a sustainable solution. Ethical considerations require deeper investigations on alternatives before any commercial decisions are made
