Captain’s Quarters has the story on the 5 month old child in Texas who was euthanized against his mother’s express wishes. Part of their reasoning was that the mother said the baby’s father was “the sun in the sky”. The child had an extreme form of dwarfism that when it is fatal, usually causes the death of the child neo-natally, that is within hours or days of birth. This child was 5 months old, to me that is far past neo-natal. There is another case in the system, where a wife is fighting desperately for her husband’s life. The hospital wants to end support.
