In Jennifer Steinhauer and Stephanie Strom's article "Senate to vote on GMO food labeling bill" (March 2016), they demonstrate the two sides of the public and their believes in the effects of labeling or not labeling foods. The author 's first illustrate their idea by stating the controversy and the two sides; then they demonstrate the effects that labeling will cause such as price increases; and to conclude they propose the response to products being labeled "Gmo-free." Their purpose is to present the conflict of passing the labeling bill in order to know if it will actually better the nation. They seem to have a liberal audience in mind because they show both of the opinions surrounding the issue of labeling coming from Democrats and Republicans.
