Belgian legislators are debating whether to amend the decade-old law allowing euthanasia to include minors.
Experts have told parliament that  euthanasia among minors was already taking place, but without any set  guidelines.
Currently, the law applies to those over 18, but one expert told the upper  house of parliament that it was clear that euthanasia was being carried out on  younger people, the Belga news agency reported. …Professor Chris Van Geet of Leuven University, said the proposed changes pose  “an enormous ethical problem”.
