     Euthanasia is against the law as it stands.

    That said, euthanasia should be a choice by the patient. It should be a right that all individuals have. So, legally, he was wrong. But his motive is understandable.

    relative to children, most of them don't have the information to make such a choice, even if they have the ability to reason for themselves.

    No matter what your age, suicide is not a right and assisted suicide is murder.

    We take an oath to do no harm. There are times when continuing life and /or treatment causes more harm by continuing suffering that cannot be cured. These are very difficult decisions to make. For those that have lived a long life this is somewhat less difficult to make compared to a younger individual. There are probably times it is appropriate for pediatric patient's however I do not feel I have the clinical experience to make that decision at this time.

    Just FYI physician assisted suicide is legal in some states in the US and several countries around the world.
