Montanans Against Assisted Suicide
A look at the history of assisted suicide laws in Montana reveal that legalization was considered and rejected in the Bill of Rights Committee of the 1972 Constitutional Convention. Since then the Montana Supreme Court vacated the lower court’s claim that State sanctioned suicide is a constitutional right. No right exist.

MTAAS is a single issue group. Join the Resistance and save lives every day.
Supporters of MTAAS are from the entire spectrum of us all. We leave our differences at the door to focus on the text of bills/laws that provide instant immunity to predatory corporations and others. Once we learn that the euthanasia monopoly’s bills/laws can easily be wrongly administered we stand united in the gap. BDW

By Margaret K. Dore, Esq. Since the passage of Oregon’s law allowing physician-assisted suicide, other suicides in Oregon have steadily increased. This is consistent with a suicide contagion in which the legalization of physician-assisted suicides has encouraged other suicides. In Oregon, the financial and emotional impacts of suicide on family members and the broader community […]
