If a minor can do that, then why not…

Belgium is considering allowing certain minors to decide if euthanasia is right for them. They believe that some have the capacity to decide their future. So, what does that say about other issues that minors supposedly can’t decide: alcohol consumption, sex with an adult? But maybe Belgium, at this point, doesn’t prohibit these things either. But as the U.S., in some areas, desires to follow it’s more enlightened forebears, this is not an issue that we should ignore. Ultimately the government will decide who can and who cannot decide, and it is the government that wants control of life, especially children.
