South Dakotans Support Choice
In 2006 grassroots activists collected thousands of signatures to refer extreme abortion legislation to a popular vote (Referred Law 6). 56.6% of the state voted NO.
We doubled down in 2008 when 55% of the state voted against extreme abortion legislation (Initiated Measure 11).
We will start circulating petitions on 11/9/22. The first day SD law allows. We then have 365 days to collect 50,000 signatures to put Roe on the ballot!
Put Roe v Wade on the Ballot
Let the people decide!
Ballot Measures for Reproductive Health
The Supreme Court's decision to strike down Roe vs Wade has ended a woman's right to choose in South Dakota, even in case of rape and incest, due to the most extreme 'trigger laws' in the nation that have already gone into effect.
That's why the Democracy Center, Dakotans for Health, and a lot of people like YOU are going to collect 50,000 signatures and place a Roe vs Wade Constitutional Amendment on the ballot. Let the people decide!
South Dakotans said NO to extreme abortion ballot measures in 2006 and 2008. We beat them then and we'll codify woman's right to choose in 2024 , with your help...
365 days to collect 50,000 Signatures
South Dakota has a rich history of voters taking matters into their own hands when their state leaders fail to act.
It is called the Citizen Ballot Initiative and we have been doing it around here since 1898.
Now we need your help to become one of the first states to codify Roe vs Wade via the Citizen Ballot Initiative.
Please make a DONATION to help get our signature collection campaign off the ground today!
Grassroots activists came together to protect reproductive choice in 2006 and 2008. We'll do it in 2024 too.
