MOSCOW, February 17. /ITAR-TASS/. The issue of adoption of children into countries, which authorize children’s euthanasia, needs consideration, Deputy Science and Education Minister Veniamin Kaganov told journalists on Monday.
On February 13, the Lower House of Belgian parliament passed a bill that authorized euthanasia for children. The bill will come into force ten days after the King signs it into law and the bill is published. The bill authorizes an adolescent to ask for euthanasia with the consent of an adolescent's parents and authorizes parents of a sick adolescent to ask for euthanasia for the sick child in case of the child's disability. The bill authorizes euthanasia only "if a child suffers from an incurable disease which causes the child incessant physical pain or a nervous stress."
In the Netherlands, euthanasia for adolescents is authorized since 1998. Eight adolescents died of euthanasia since it was authorized in that country 15 years ago.
