A provocative look at the ethical and legal issues surrounding the saving of very premature babies. This text presents the viewpoints of both medical professionals and the families who have to cope with children left with multiple and profound learning disabilities as a result of pre-term delivery. The text discusses the sanctity of life versus the quality of life, whilst bringing in wider philosophical and practical issues of "life at any cost". The guide presents the legal and ethical dilemmas faced by doctors and parents when deciding which course of treatment may be best for the child.
