At least 3,147.
There have been at least 3,147 deaths from euthanasia reported worldwide. This is based on data from the Disability and Health Journal published in January 2010 that reported 401 assisted suicide deaths in Washington state by the end of 2009, 246 assisted suicide deaths in Oregon from 1998 to 2005 reported by the International Task Force on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide, and 2,500 euthanasia deaths in the Netherlands as of 2009 reported by the Euthanasia Prevention Coaltition.
