The language that appeared on the ballot:

This measure makes it a felony to kill a fetus in the "process of birth" except when such procedure is the only way to prevent death of the mother. This measure defines the "process of birth" as the point in time when the mother's cervix has become dilated, the membrane of the amniotic sac has ruptured, and any part of the fetus has passed from the uterus or womb into the birth canal.
