|A terminally ill 17-year-old has become the first minor to be euthanised in Belgium since age restrictions on such mercy killings in the country were lifted in 2014 http://www.teamcanadahockeyshop.com/Matt-Duchene-Jersey/ , it was learned Saturday.
"The euthanasia has taken place," Jacqueline Herremans, a member of Belgium's federal euthanasia commission, told AFP.
She added that the assisted death had taken place according to Belgian law.
Wim Distelmans, head of the euthanasia commission, gave no details of the minor involved beyond saying it was an exceptional case of a child with a terminal illness, the Het Nieuwsblad newspaper reported.
VRT public television said the incident involved an adolescent who was about to turn 18.
"Fortunately, there are very few children who are considered (for euthanasia) but that does not mean we should refuse them the right to a dignified death," Distelmans told the newspaper.
Since 2014, when its euthanasia legislation was amended, Belgium has been the only country in the world that allows terminally-ill children of any age to choose to end their suffering -- as long as they are conscious and capable of making rational decisions.
The Netherlands also allows mercy killings for children, but only for those aged over 12.
- 'Very controlled' -
The Belgian amendment, which was passed after heated debate -- notably over the meaning of a "capacity of discernment" -- offers the possibility of euthanasia to children "in a hopeless medical situation of constant and unbearable suffering that cannot be eased and which will cause death in the short term".
Any request for euthanasia must be made by the minor, be studied by a team of doctors and an independent psychiatrist or psychologist, and have parental consent.
When amending the law, Belgian legislators had decided not to include psychological suffering in the list of factors determining whether euthanasia may be allowed for minors, though it is admissable for adults.
The 2014 vote was passed by 86 lawmakers in favour and a 44 against, in the traditionally Catholic nation.
A poll which was taken a few months before the final parliamentary vote indicated that three-quarters of Belgians were in favour of extending euthanasia to minors.
Since the law was changed, there have been other euthanasia requests from minors but none had previously been granted, said Herremans.
The whole process is "very controlled" and "often very long" and particularly difficult when it concerns a minor, she added.
Altogether over 2,000 mercy killings were declared in Belgium last year, a record number since the practice was made legal in 2002.
Last weekend Belgian Paralympian Marieke Vervoort said in Rio that she is considering euthanasia to escape a life of unbearable physical pain -- only not quite yet.
Vervoort, who won silver in the 400m wheelchair race at the Paralympic Games, played down earlier reports that she planned to be euthanized after her return from Brazil.
"I have my (euthanasia) papers in my hand, but I'm still enjoying every little moment. When the moment comes when I have more bad days than good days, then I have my euthanasia papers, but the time is not there yet," she told a news conference in Rio, Brazil, where the Paralympic Games are taking place.
After the Netherlands and Belgium, Luxembourg approved euthanasia but for adults only in 2009.
In Switzerland, doctors can assist a patient seeking to die but euthanasia itself is illegal.
The underground sport of street racing is becoming remarkably massive in popularity. Unfortunately, when it comes down to it, the expenses required to get started with street racing can also be quite massive themselves. Newbies to the sport can help alleviate some of the financial pain by choosing the right car to race in the first place. Here are a few pointers.
Start With The Right Car.
It's no surprise that many street racers get started by modding the daily driver they already own. This is just fine. In fact, unless you have the big bucks to spend on a ride that's already been tuned and tweaked with the finest performance equipment, it is highly recommended to start with a solid car that hasn't previously been raced. Street racing does tend to seriously stress the mechanical components of a vehicle. Get into the hobby with a car that hasn't already been used and abused.
Choose A Car That Can Be Modded.
Chances are, you probably already have the make and model of your ideal street racer in mind. While the rapidly growing parts and performance industry makes high performance add-ons and race-ready parts for the engines, suspensions, bodies, and other components of a huge variety of vehicles, it's worth realizing that some cars will have many more aftermarket options available than others. The more common the particular car is in the world of street racing, the easier it will be to score the best racing parts at the lowest prices... it's simply a textbook case of supply and demand.
Be Creative In The Search For The Perfect Street Racer.
The best buys, especially when it comes to cars ready for racing modifications, rarely come from the dealership lot. Instead, sources such as eBay and craigslist often boast hundreds of tuner-ready cars of the exact make and model you desire available to purchase from individuals at or below wholesale prices. Also, it's important to be aware that street racing requires mods to cars that make traditional financing options less than appealing. So what's the best way to buy a street racer? The answer is saved up cash, of course!
Street racing is an extremely exhilarating and fast paced sport. It helps to have the right performance equipment to begin with. And remember, do be safe and responsible - have fun with your street racing car by only participating in legal track events. Th.
