However, given that evidence has been around nearly 15 years, and widely available for at least a decade, do users still have a right to sue? Isn't this like a modern smoker trying to sue big tobacco even though health warnings about tobacco use have been around for decades? You made a choice contrary to reputable scientific and/or medical research. Shouldn't you have to live with the consequences of that choice?

No. There is no evidence that roundup causes cancer in humans in the exposed quantities.
The lung cancer & smoking analogy isn't valid. Lung cancer is extremely correlated with smoking. It isn't a matter of whether a smoker will get lung cancer, it is a matter of whether he dies of something else before he does. If you are not exposed to cigarette smoke, coal dust, or asbestos, the chances of getting lung cancer is remote.
In order for someone to sue over roundup, he should have to prove that no other means of getting cancer could have caused it. That isn't happening.
