There are simply no words adequate to describe the monstrosity of these actions. We euthanize dogs and cats because it is our duty to make sure they do not suffer needlessly. To euthanize a newborn child is murder. And if I may rebut this claim:
"Measures that might marginally extend a child's life by minutes or hours or days or weeks are stopped. This happens routinely, namely, every day," said Lance Stell, professor of medical ethics at Davidson College in Davidson, N.C., and staff ethicist at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, N.C. "Everybody knows that it happens, but there's a lot of hypocrisy. Instead, people talk about things they're not going to do."
More than half of all deaths occur under medical supervision, so it's really about management and method of death, Stell said.
this is not the same thing as terminating life support or stopping a treatment. To stick a needle in a vein and push the plunger is to actively participate in the ending of a life. When you pull the plug on the baby's breathing apparatus, you are letting things take their natural course. When you give the baby a lethal dose of sedatives, you are forcing death upon the child. There is a difference between artificially extending a life and artificially ending one, and the latter should never be equated with the former.
