There is no legislative activity around assisted dying in South Dakota in the current legislative session.
However, we are providing technical assistance for a citizen-driven initiative that aims to put a Washington-modeled assisted dying law on the 2018 ballot. Learn more and get involved at Death with Dignity South Dakota’s Facebook page.
In February 2017, South Dakota State Senate approved and later the House concurred with Resolution 11 “opposing assisted suicide.”
