Dutch Doctors want to Kill Terminally Ill Children

Link leads to news story
In Holland, euthanasia is legal in many circumstances and practiced in far more, as in the case of the many 'involuntary assisted suicides'. Disabled people have to carry cards in their wallets in case they are taken to the hospital , so they won't be put out of their misery.

But there is some hesitation to kill children. A poll shows Dutch doctors want to be able to kill 'terminally ill' children. In the pro-death culture of Holland, most children with a severe illness will be sure to ask for death to spare their families pain and expense.
