Journalists look at the electronic voting board as Belgian politicians vote in favor of the bill on child euthanasia at the Belgian federal parliament in Brussels on Feb. 13, 2014. Belgium, one of the very few countries where euthanasia is legal, takes the unprecedented step of abolishing age restrictions on who can ask to be put to death, extending the right to children. The legislation appears to have wide support in the largely liberal country. But it has also aroused intense opposition from foes, including a list of pediatricians, and everyday people who have staged street protests, fearing that vulnerable children will be talked into making a final, irreversible choice.

FILE - In this Thursday, May 6, 2010 file photo, a radiologist uses a magnifying glass to check mammograms for breast cancer in Los Angeles. A Canadian study published Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014 in the British journal BMJ has revived a debate about the value of mammograms. The study suggests that screening X-rays do not lower the risk of dying of breast cancer while finding many tumors that do not need treatment. Critics say the researchers used outdated equipment and methods that made mammograms look unfairly ineffective. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes, File)
