As for the "situations," there are heartbreaking and tragic situations involving children and adults as well - children with devastating and unavoidably fatal (in the intermediate term) congenital disorders, adults utterly demolished by dementia and wasting illnesses - where we might all decide that allowing the passing of the stricken person would be best for all concerned. But we never leave it up to the conscience of individual relatives and doctors to take active steps to kill those people, and impose rules societally to ensure that the interests of the stricken individuals are taken into account in any decision even to withhold care.

these situations sometimes become a lot simpler when there's no health insurer and nobody can afford to sustain a tragedy with modern medicine any longer.
