Excellent news for those seeking to make their own medical decisions with their own bodies:
(Jefferson City, MO) — A Cole County judge has dismissed a lawsuit that sought to stop an Aug. 3 ballot issue vote offering Missourians a chance to express their position on the nation’s new health care act.
Judge Paul C. Wilson ruled late Friday against Jefferson City attorney Chip Gentry’s argument that the ballot issue exceeds its original purpose and does not contain a clear title focused on a single subject.
Patrick Tuohey of Missourians for Health Care Freedom said he was happy Missouri would be the first state to hold a referendum on the broad-based federal health care reforms of 2010.
“This is really the first time that any citizen in the country has had the opportunity to express their view directly,” Tuohey said. “This is an opportunity for Missourians to express their views on the health care plan that came out of Washington.”
