Petition Location Battle Affecting Abortion Measure

(Sioux Falls, SD) — Petitioners attempting to make abortion a constitutional right and anti-abortion advocates are in a battle over petition policy at the Minnehaha County Administration Building. One of the petitioning groups is Dakotans for Health, a grassroots organization seeking enough signatures to put the abortion issue on the 2024 ballot. Volunteers from the anti-abortion Life Defense Fund are trying to slow down petitioners through its “Decline to Sign” campaign. The groups are contesting constitutional rights over petition location limitations at the administration building, which has been a long-time petition hub.
