A proposed law on the verge of approval by the Belgium parliament would allow children to decide for themselves whether they should be euthanized ("killed") by medical personnel. Currently, Belgian law limits euthanasia to persons 18 and older, but with the rise of autistic children thanks to biopesticides, GMOs and vaccines, nations are increasingly trying to figure out what to do with all these children who have been permanently damaged by the medical and biotech industries
Because, of course, a six-year-old isn't old enough to drive a car or buy a beer, but they can certainly consent to being killed by the state... especially if they're already a burden on health care costs.
But wait, there's more! It's not just children who will be euthanized under this new law, it's also scores of Alzheimer's patients.
"Parliamentarians would also consider extended mercy-killing to people suffering from Alzheimer's-type illnesses," said the socialist senator.

If anyone is suffering, their suffering is of high enough intensity, and we cannot alleviate it, and they themselves dont actively disagree, then euthanasia is certainly justified. This applies to animals, children, adults, old people and any sentient entity. Thats a matter of principle for me.
Supreme disagreement with your statement (see bold above)!
By your statement, a doc could walk into a room ask you if you want to be killed and proceed on the basis of not getting a response or an answer from you.
