Missouri Voters Can Sign Petitions to Vote on Abortion, Stem Cell Research in 2010
With approval from the Missouri Secretary of State's office this week, pro-life advocates who are supporting ballot measures on abortion and stem cell research can move ahead to gather signatures. They need signatures from enough state residents to be able to get the amendments on the 2010 ballot. The first initiative, called the Missouri Taxpayer Protection Amendment, is submitted by a pro-life group named Missouri Roundtable For Life. The amendment would stop the state from using taxpayer dollars to finance abortion and human cloning. It "protects Missourian’s hard-earned tax dollars" from being used for abortions not medically necessary to save the life of the mother, abortion services, human cloning and other controversial human research."
