United States Law
The law is named Death with Dignity (DWD) Oregon was the first state to legalize euthanasia here in the United States and was approved in 1994 and Vermont and Washington also legalized euthanasia. Washington passed their law in 2008 and it was implemented in 2009 after no credible legal challenges. Vermont became the third state with a (DWD) law in 2013. Currently in Montana a debate is happening due to a court decision which leaves the issue in doubt.
