The group filed language with Secretary of State Robin Carnahan on Friday to put a citizen initiative on the November 2010 ballot.
The initiative, called the Missouri Taxpayer Protection Amendment, "protects Missourian's hard-earned tax dollars" from being used for abortions not medically necessary to save the life of the mother, abortion services, human cloning and other controversial human research.
Missouri Roundtable For Life director Todd Jones told LifeNews.com about the latest effort.
"This amendment, which is a modified version of the Taxpayer Protection Amendment we filed late last year and litigated with Secretary of State Robin Carnahan over her highly prejudicial ballot language," he said. "[It] would simply clarify what Missourians already believe to be true: that tax dollars should never be spent for [those practices]."
"During these tough economic times, Missourians have every right to protect their hard-earned tax dollars from being diverted to controversial research instead of legitimate medical research and essential state services," Jones continued.
"The Missouri Taxpayer Protection Amendment has the added bonus of protecting Missouri's majority passed pro-life laws from any changes in federal law during the current debates on nationalized healthcare," he told LifeNews.com on Tuesday.
