Governor Signs Bill to Fund Unethical Research


Missouri Right to Life
Press Release

For Immediate Release:
October 21, 2011

For Information:

Missouri Governor Signs Bill to Fund Human Cloning
And Embryonic Stem Cell Research

The following statement can be attributed to Pam Fichter, President Missouri Right to Life:

Missouri Right to Life is profoundly disappointed in the action of Governor Jay Nixon who today signed into law SB 7, the Missouri Science Innovation and Reinvestment Act (MOSIRA).

MOSIRA sets up a fund, channeled through the state budget, to be administered by the pro-cloning Missouri Technology Corporation, to provide state money and/or tax incentives for new technology businesses, including businesses engaged in human life sciences research.

Missouri Right to Life sought to add language to this legislation that would effectively prevent any MOSIRA funds from being used for unethical research. Sadly, neither the Missouri Legislature nor Governor Nixon valued the concerns of pro-life Missourians who have always opposed public funding for human cloning or embryonic stem cell research.
