Missouri Roundtable For Life, Missouri Right To Life, Lawyers For Life, And Missouri Citizens Seek Temporary Restraining Order In MOSIRA Case

Expedited Hearing On Friday, February 17 At 10:30 AM

St. Louis – February 15, 2012 – Missouri Roundtable For Life, Missouri Right To Life, Lawyers For Life, and Missouri citizens filed an Emergency Motion for Temporary Restraining Order and Preliminary Injunction on February 14, 2012 seeking to restrain Governor Nixon from further implementing the facially void MOSIRA Bill (Senate Bill No. 7 from the 2011 Special Session of the Missouri Legislature).

A hearing in Missouri Roundtable For Life, et al. v. State of Missouri, et al., Robin Carnahan, Case No. 11AC-CC00770, is scheduled for Friday, February 17, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. before Judge Daniel Green in Cole County Circuit Court.

MRFL and the other Plaintiffs filed this motion after discovery that Governor Nixon has already taken steps to implement MOSIRA even before the conclusion of this case which seeks a declaration from Judge Green that the MOSIRA legislation is void since the Aerotropolis Bill (Senate Bill No. 8) did not also pass the 2011 Special Session of the Missouri Legislature. The MOSIRA Bill’s contingency clause required passage of the Aerotropolis Bill for it to become law.

“Missouri Roundtable For Life filed this Motion for Temporary Restraining Order and Preliminary Injunction after discovering that Governor Nixon has already begun implementing MOSIRA, including plans to distribute over $425,000 of taxpayer funds through the Missouri Technology Corporation next Tuesday to illegally implement the void MOSIRA Bill,” said Fred Sauer of Missouri Roundtable For Life.

MOSIRA is a scheme to funnel taxpayer money to science special interests. It threatens to force taxpayers to pay for abortion, human cloning, and life-destructive experimentation with public funds.
