WYA Europe invites you to an open debate on 10 March, 2014 from 7 pm - 10 pm entitled "Freedom and Pain Examined: Euthanasia, evaluation and perspectives for the future", following the extension of the Belgium euthanasia law to children. The law was voted in the chambers in December and February, and the King fulfilled his constitutional obligation to sign it into effect at the beginning of March.

Opening Remarks: Daniel Wisniewski, Regional Director WYA Europe 
"How did this law happen, and what does it mean?": Carine Brochier, Project coordinator at the European Institute of Bioethics 
"A medical perspective on the law": Professor Timothy Devos, on behalf of the pediatricians who wrote an open letter against euthanasia for children 
What can young people do now? Caroline de Dorlodot, Member WYA Belgium. 

We are pleased to offer you a dynamic debate and dinner after the talks.
