South Dakota assisted suicide voter initiative fails.

Alex Schadenberg
Executive Director, Euthanasia Prevention Coalition

Great News: The assisted suicide lobby failed to collect 13,781, the number of signatures that were needed to get assisted suicide on the ballot in 2018. This is a great victory for the Citizens Against Assisted Suicide in South Dakota and everyone in South Dakota.

The Citizens Against Assisted Suicide stated on their facebook page that:

The difficulty Ms. Mentele had collecting enough signatures both last election cycle and this one is pretty good evidence the vast majority of South Dakotans don’t support suicide... They didn’t lose by not trying, they lost because they were trying to sell what people didn’t want to buy.
South Dakota citizens will continue to be protected from assisted suicide.
