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.[1]

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.
