Belgian Lawmakers to Vote Whether to Allow Euthanasia for Terminally-Ill Children

Belgian lawmakers will vote on whether to extend the right to euthanasia to terminally-ill children next week, parliament announced Thursday, with the measure expected to be approved.

The bill would allow minors to ask for euthanasia if they are terminally ill, if they are in great pain and if there is no treatment to alleviate their distress.

The request has to be agreed by the patient’s medical team and parents.
