    In contrast to the Netherlands, where the courts, the medical profession, and the public had gradually come to accept the practice of assisted death, legalization of assisted dying in Belgium in was preceded by much acrimonious debate. Many Belgian doctors to this day hold strong reservations about euthanasia. While the Belgian law owes much to Dutch practice, there are also important. The Australian state of Victoria has a law allowing physician-assisted suicide which came into effect in June , with Western Australia passing a similar law in December Physician-assisted suicide and voluntary euthanasia is illegal in all other Australian states and territories. Although rare, charges have been laid for 'aiding and abetting' the suicide of others.

    Euthanasia, Ethics and the Law argues that the law governing the ending of life in England and Wales is unclear, confused and often contradictory. The book shows that the rules are in competition because the ethical principles underlying the rules are also diverse and conflicting.   “The main difference between euthanasia and assisted suicide is who performs the final, fatal act,” said Richard Huxtable, professor of medical ethics and law at the University of Bristol.

      Unsplash/Daan Stevens. The Netherlands is set to pave the way for legalized euthanasia of very young children. According to the NLTimes Tuesday, the northwestern European nation, which already has some of the most liberal euthanasia policies in the world, is likely to expand its law to permit children ages to be euthanized in certain circumstances. The Dutch Ministers of Justice Benk Korthals, standing far left, and of Health Els Borst, sitting next to him, defend a new law on euthanasia in the upper house of Parliament in The Hague, April.
