    another problem I'm seeing, and that is defining whether any particular child can actually imagine their death. Granted that you haven't specified what is meant by "child" - are we talking anyone under whatever the legal age of consent is in a given country, or under the age of 18, or ?? There will have to be a minimum defined, I suspect, and it's going to be a tricky definition, of what age constitutes a "competent minor" for this purpose.

    At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)
