Truth and Justice Triumph in Missouri

Thanks be to God! Yesterday Judge Patricia Joyce upheld the challenge by Missouri Cures Without Cloning to Secretary of State Robin Carnahan’s inaccurate and blatantly biased ballot summary for a constitutional amendment to truly ban human cloning in Missouri. I am incredibly pleased and quite frankly surprised at the ruling. The revised language is much closer to the purpose of the actual Amendment than Carnahan’s disgraceful language.

Because of the lawsuit, progress has been delayed for quite some time. So we still have very hard work ahead of us if we are to have any chance of getting this on the ballot in November, especially if the opposition decides to appeal in an effort to halt the signature gathering process. Please keep us in your prayers so that we can finally, truly ban human cloning (and promote REAL hope for therapies and cures) in Missouri!

  1. It is excellent to see that that misleading ballot summary was overturned and replaced with one that actually describes the proposed amendment. Judge Joyce’s ruling is a victory for the democratic process.

  2. Since when do judges write or rewrite proposed legistlation?

    Isnt this more radical legistlation from the bench.

    Didnt we just vote on this last election? Do we just keep wasting time and money on politics?

    What is to stop pro researchers from challenging the law again? Where will it ever stop

  3. The people voted to ban the implantation of an already cloned human embryo into a woman’s uterus. They were not offered the chance to vote to ban human cloning all together, which is what we’re trying to do here. As citizens we have a right and a duty to prohibit unwanted research in our state, especially when it violates human dignity. And I don’t consider it a waste of time or money.

    Regarding the ballot language; this was a case of political activism on the part of the Secretary of State that the judge rightly fixed. She didn’t rewrite the proposed law, just the ballot summary. This is the
    second time this year that SOS Carnahan has had her ballot language overturned.

    And yes, obviously the other side can challenge the law again and it would be their right to do so. When tensions are so high on both sides of an issue like this, anything is possible. Also, I do not really think that the scientific and political dialogue on something as important as human cloning should ever completely “stop”.
