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. We welcome everyone who is against assisted suicide regardless of your views on other issues. Join the Resistance and save lives every day.
