The Dutch government of the Netherlands has allowed doctors to end the lives of children who are normally ill. Now doctors will be able to end the life of those children in their own way, so that the children do not have problems. This decision of the government has sparked debate since the death of such patients in the medical field.
The Netherlands government has been in favor of the fact that if a person has a serious illness or is very unlikely to be cured, they can be killed with medical help. People who are 12 years of age or younger are killed with medical help.
This type of work also requires the approval of the parents. In a letter to Parliament on Tuesday, Dutch Health Minister Hugo de Jong proposed to expand the law to include children aged 12 and up who are dying and suffering.
