The language appeared on the ballot as:[1]

Ballot Measure No. 6
Initiative No. 80-04
Limiting State Funding of Abortions

This initiative would amend the provisions of Title 47 of the Alaska Statutes, Welfare, Social Services and Institutions, by prohibiting state funding of abortions except upon written certification of a physician that the procedure was necessary to preserve the life of a patient and that all reasonable efforts were made to preserve the life of the unborn. The bill provides that the prohibition of state funding of abortions will not affect state participation in the medicaid program established under Title XIX of the Social Security Act.[2]
