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.
