vernonFL: Its only in extremely limited and regulated cases. I cant see this affecting very many people.

The Netherlands have had this for 10 years now (from children from age 12 and up) and I don't think there's been a single case where a request was actually approved.

The Belgian proposal doesn't set an age limit but the child must be 'mentally competent' and in debilitating physical pain without a chance of improvement. Both parents must agree, as must the child's doctor(s) and other consulting specialists. (This is just a layman's recapitulation of course.)

So yeah, we won't kill of an entire generation of our own offspring.
