URGENT ALERT! TAKE ACTION NOW!
STOP SMALLPOX GENETIC ENGINEERING!
Please take action now to stop smallpox genetic engineering! Visit www.smallpoxbiosafety.org to send a letter to the WHO
Director General, urging the World Health Assembly to reject a proposal that would permit the genetic engineering of
smallpox, and to instead ensure that all remaining stocks of the virus are destroyed within two years.
The proposal to genetically engineer smallpox, which would also permit smallpox genes to be inserted into related
poxviruses and the unlimited distribution of small segments of smallpox DNA, poses a large number of public health,
biosafety, and biological weapons risks.
The World Health Assembly will discuss the proposal when it
meets in Geneva, Switzerland from 16-25 May 2005.
