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.[1]

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”.[1]

The group has previously tangled with Carnahan over her ballot titles for the Missouri No Public Funds for Stem Cell Research Initiative (2010).
