Montana Attorney General approves language of controversial ballot initiative
HELENA, Montana: Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock approved the ballot language of a controversial ballot initiative during the week of September 4, 2009. However, opponents stated that the proposed ballot measure's language is misleading and also does not take into consideration a woman's right to privacy. The proposed initiated constitutional amendment would amend the Montana Constitution to say that human life begins at fertilization.
An effort in Montana in 2008 to qualify the Montana Right To Life Initiative for the ballot was unsuccessful in collecting sufficient signatures to earn a spot on the ballot.
