Amendment G would impose an extreme abortion law

In the November 5, 2024 general election, voters will be asked to decide Amendment G. It would place in the South Dakota state constitution a right to have an abortion for any reason, even late in pregnancy when a preborn child is capable of feeling pain and living outside the womb. Amendment G also endangers women’s lives by eliminating health and safety regulations for most abortions.
The South Dakota Catholic Conference urges a NO vote on Amendment G. Learn more about this dangerous and deceptive measure with the resources below.
