South Dakotans Support Reproductive Rights

57%

In 2006 grassroots activists collected thousands of signatures to refer extreme abortion legislation to a popular vote, 57% voted NO. 

56%

We doubled down in 2008 when 56% of the state voted against extreme abortion legislation  (Initiated Measure 11). 

65%

According to a recent Mason-Dixon poll 65% of South Dakota voters want reproductive rights decided through a ballot measure and not the legislature.

Put Roe v Wade on the Ballot

Let the people decide!

Freedom and Family

Roe v. Wade is gone, abolished by two new extremist justices who pledged under oath not to violate it, then destroyed it entirely at their first opportunity. 

 

In South Dakota fundamentalist politicians have used that permission to adopt a breathtakingly extreme set of chains that now shackle every woman in the state. 

 

Fortunately for all of us South Dakota pioneered the ballot initiative. That’s why in November 2024, four presidential heads won’t be the only things etched in South Dakota stone, Roe v. Wade will be too!  That is where you come in...

Restore Roe

Our amendment will Restore Roe v. Wade, period. Just read it yourself:

  • No government interference in the first trimester.

  • The state can regulate in the second trimester.

  • The state can regulate and even ban in the third trimester except life of the mother.

We are on a deadline and we hope you will help. Join our campaign to give South Dakotans back the rights that extreme politicians have stolen today!

Grassroots activists came together to protect reproductive choice in 2006 and 2008. We'll do it in 2024 too.
