In theory. In reality, a farmer applies much more pesticide (organophosphates, RoundUp) at various times in the growing cycle because the crop cannot be harmed. Additionally, Bt splices push resistance and Bt cannot be replaced naturally.If anything GMO's reduce the use of pesticides which I think would be a tick mark in the 'pro' column for what you seem concerned about.

You're in pretty dangerous territory when you advocate for decreased consumer information. If GMOs are beneficial, they'll decrease the cost to produce GMO food. That benefit has to overcome consumers perceived risk of GMO. Its simple economics.
