25. January 2008 - Debate in the German Parliament - Vote on the law on genetic engineering:
Record of the session on 25 January 2008
German Parliament website

Here a translation of a quotation from the debate:
This quotation is given in German in the text document from line 142
The FDP (liberal) Member of Parliament
Mrs Dr. Christel Happach-Kasan is speaking:

It is certainly striking, fellow members of the House, that opponents of genetic engineering are bringing a convicted farmer here from Canada, ({interjections} objection by the SPD {the socialists}, the BÜNDNIS 90/ DIE GRUENEN {the greens} and the LINKEN {the left}) so that he can mobilize the public against genetic engineering with stories that are untrue. Farmers who want to disagree with him are prevented from doing so. Some opponents of genetic engineering are therefore clearly members of a sect. And it is precisely this sect that is helping the ruling coalition with this draft bill. ({Interjection from the Member of Parliament} Ulrike Hoefken [BÜNDNIS 90/DIE GRUENEN {the greens}]: you must clone this speech!)
