California, Vermont and Washington have similar laws that allow some form of medical aid in dying. In Montana, people can be given the option through case-by-case court approval. Canada, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and Switzerland also allow medically assisted death. In Belgium in September, a child was euthanized for the first time. The minor was terminally ill and reportedly asked for the assisted suicide, but no other details (including the exact age of the individual) have been released.
