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.
In the 2011, 2013 and 2015 Montana legislative sessions, we helped defeat bills that would have legalized assisted suicide/euthanasia in Montana. The Resistance is saving lives every day in spite of record spending/lobbying by the euthanasia monopoly.
Why We Care
Legal assisted suicide encourages people with many quality years left to throw away their lives. Non-transparent Legalization is a recipe for elder abuse and brightly enables predators. In Oregon, WA, CA and CO legalization allows the State to steer citizens to suicide. We need suicide prevention for all. Every State Suicide Prevention Plan needs to address the “mistaken assumption that suicide is a rational response to a disability”. What say you Montana Governor Bullock? Your plan ignores our voice.

In response to the report about Hawaii (“Doctor-assisted suicide close to becoming law in Hawaii,” March 29). Sadly, House Bill 2739 is going to the Hawaii governor. This bill misleads and uses doublespeak throughout. Countering the first statement, it should say that over […]
