The small European country of Belgium is in the news after its parliament voted to remove age restrictions from the country's euthanasia laws. If King Phillipe signs the bill into law, it means children will be eligible for euthanasia.
Belgium has allowed euthanasia since 2002. One of the provisions in the law is that it only applies to those in “constant and unbearable physical or mental suffering that cannot be alleviated.”
The Valley Sun asks its In Theory respondents this week: “What's your take on this move by Belgium?” To read their replies, visit www.lacanadaonline.com/opinion/religion.
