Over the course of next year, six children will stare down Monsanto in U.S. courtrooms.
Six children, whose childhoods have been interrupted by excruciatingly painful cancer treatments.
Six children, whose once bright futures are now uncertain.
Six children who have cancer because they were innocently exposed to Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller.
We owe it to these children to do everything in our power to stop the poisoning of our food, our parks, our water—even our playgrounds. Please make a donation today to help fund the fight to keep our children safe from Monsanto and other poison-peddlers.
The science couldn’t be more clear: children exposed to pesticides before birth or during other critical periods of growth often end up with lower IQs, birth defects and developmental delays.
These kids are also at a higher risk for autism spectrum disorder, ADHD and cancer.
Thanks to a study released earlier this year, scientists also believe that when adults are exposed to glyphosate, that exposure may lead to health problems in their kids and even their grandkids.
It’s simply unconscionable that we continue to poison our children.
Thanks to the support of thousands of people like you, I’ve been able to devote a good portion of my activist life to exposing the poisonous corruption of Monsanto (now owned by Bayer) and the harm these chemical companies inflict on all of us.
I’m a perennial optimist. But there are days when even I question our collective ability to bring down a company like Monsanto.
Those are the days when I know it’s time to double down.
Those are the days when I know this battle can, and will, be won—if we all remain committed.
We owe it to the six children suing Monsanto, and to all the other children whose childhoods have been, or will be in the future, sacrificed at the altar of corporate profits, to keep up the relentless pressure on corporations and politicians to end the use of Roundup and other pesticides.
As Nelson Mandela wisely said, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
Let’s do it. Together.
