In Belgium euthanasia for children with consent of their parents may be legalized

Brussels, November 1, 2013

Belgian legislators are considering a proposal to legalize euthanasia for children with consent of their parents, reports Sedmitza with the reference to the CWN agency.

Belgium became the first country to legalize euthanasia. More than 1000 Belgians every year make the decision to depart from this world by means of euthanasia in accordance with the existing statute in the country.

Meanwhile, supporters of euthanasia state that the law does not provide for the possibility of euthanasia for children with grave and incurable diseases.

The bill, proposed for consideration by the Belgian parliamentarians, will give doctors the opportunity to take life of people, suffering from dementia, with consent of their family members.
