The language that appeared on the ballot:

Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to allow and set limitations on stem cell research, therapies, and cures which will:

- Ensure Missouri patients have access to any therapies and cures, and allow Missouri researchers to conduct any research, permitted under federal law;

- Ban human cloning or attempted cloning;

- Require expert medical and public oversight and annual reports on the nature and purpose of stem cell research;

- Impose criminal and civil penalties for any violations; and

- Prohibit state or local governments from preventing or discouraging lawful stem cell research, therapies and cures?
