Belgium votes to legalize euthanasia for children

The Belgium parliament just voted 86-44 to approve euthanasia for children with no age limits. We believe death is never a good solution to any problem and obviously not positive for the health of children.

The lower house of the Belgian Parliament adopted a bill that extends the right to euthanasia for minors, the Parliament said Thursday on its official Twitter account. The law passed 86 to 44 with 12 abstentions.

That followed a vote by the country's Senate in December supporting the measure. The next step would see the bill go to the king, Philippe, to be signed into law.
