Where is Euthanasia Legal?
Euthanasia is prohibited by the homicide laws of all fifty of the United States. Voters in Washington State and California defeated ballot measures to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide in the early 1990s. Other states have proposed measures to legalize euthanasia but all have failed.
Euthanasia has long been legal in the Netherlands and is often practiced without the consent of the patient. Over 10,000 citizens now carry “Do Not Euthanize Me” cards in case they are admitted to a hospital unexpectedly. Guidelines were recently adopted to allow the killing of infants with disabilities by lethal injection.

The North Korean government has been charged with killing infants with disabilities as a means to purify the masses and eliminate those who are "different."
