Doctors will be able to end the life of incurable sick children from one to 12 years

(Maria Kramer, Claire Moses) The Dutch government of the Netherlands has allowed doctors to terminate the lives of incurable or seriously ill children. Now doctors will be able to end the lives of such sick children in their own way. However, for this, they have to take permission from the parents of the children. On the other hand, this decision has sparked debate about the death in the medical field.

Some organizations say that if those children can be kept alive through drugs then why should they be given such death. However, most experts and lawmakers agree with this new law. In fact, in the Netherlands, children with a terminal illness of up to one year are allowed to die.

Dutch Health Minister Hugo de Jong proposed an extension of the law to give death to sick children. So that children up to 12 years of age can be included in the new law. He said in Parliament on Tuesday- ‘Some children are very sick. They do not expect improvement in any way. They suffer unnecessarily. About 5 to 10 such children are affected every year.

If a child is experiencing ‘unbearable and hopeless suffering’ then his life can be ended. This can help the medical sector. ‘ At present, this law has passed. Experts on the new law say – ‘The Netherlands government has been in favor of giving death to people with medical help who are unlikely to recover.’

3 European countries have provisions: Luxembourg, Belgium and Switzerland allow physician-assisted death. Although the laws are different in every country. Belgium allows children to die with the help of a doctor. But in Luxembourg, this law is limited to incurable sick adults.

New law can become a problem for big countries like America

Professor Arthur Kaplan of the New York Langon Medical Center in the US says- ‘This new law is suitable for small countries like the Netherlands. This law will increase the pressure on big countries like America. Especially in relation to adult people who are seriously ill but unable to give their consent.

I doubt that America or other big countries will follow this law of the Netherlands. Americans rely less on their medical systems than Dutch citizens. America is a big country. Such countries do not have good health facilities for all. In this situation, this law will become a problem in big countries.
