Euthanasia for minors in Belgian voted on by the Chamber Committee

Publié le : 31 January 2014

 Tuesday evening (28.1.14), the Belgian Chamber Committee voted on the draft law to extend euthanasia to minors.

This vote has already been the subject of a consensus uniting socialists, liberals, ecologists and the N-VA. Contrastingly, the cdH (humanists), CD&V (Christian and Flemish Democrats) and the Vlaams Belang (nationalists) voted against. No-one abstained. This vote is the last stage before the Chamber plenary session vote to be held in a fortnight’s time.
