When I first read this I was taken aback. Its one thing to allow an adult to do this if they are ill, in pain and medicine not doing much if anything for them, maybe not even doing much for the pain. Kids I thought was too much but don't they suffer as much as an adult would or also capable of wishing for it to be over.Belgium, one of only a few countries to allow euthanasia, on Wednesday moved a step closer to extending mercy-killing to terminally-ill children.

I'm really struggling to see this as okay but I would have a different view between a 15/16 year old than I would a 8 year old wanting this done. I'm not sure about a preteen being able to make such a decision. Which their parents would have to approve this.
Should someone under 18 have the right to be euthanized?
