Group files 7th ballot title lawsuit against Carnahan
SPRINGFIELD, Missouri: Missouri Roundtable for Life filed a lawsuit on July 29, 2009 against Robin Carnahan, saying that her office had written a ballot title for one of their proposed November 2010 ballot measures that would "mislead and confuse Missouri voters as to the plain, simple, and clear meaning” of the proposed amendment.
The Roundtable's petition is a proposal to change the funding stream for the state's Life Sciences Trust Fund, by directing “the first $200 million disbursed” from the fund to “primary healthcare for low-income Missourians, provided that no such funds shall be expended on abortion services, human cloning, or prohibited human research”.
The group has previously tangled with Carnahan over her ballot titles for the Missouri No Public Funds for Stem Cell Research Initiative (2010).
