Assisted Suicide, Euthanasia

   

C. Euthanasia and PAS In The USA and The World.  Where Is It Practiced?

“Oregon, the Netherlands and Belgium are the only jurisdictions in the world where laws specifically permit euthanasia or assisted suicide. Oregon permits assisted suicide. The Netherlands and Belgium permit both euthanasia and assisted suicide.” www.internationaltaskforce.org/faq.htm

Attempts in Washington, California, Hawaii and other states have failed.  California’s 2005 Assembly Bill 654 the “California Compassionate Choices Act” would have created the same kind of law as in Oregon. It failed again in 2006.
