Should extreme preemies be saved?

16 11 2006

I thought of this article a little bit disturbing. If I was the parent of a preemie, I would do everything in my power to save his/her life. Unfortunately, life is tough and sometimes cut short, but I do not agree with destroying a life even if the doctors tell me it’s the right thing to do.

LONDON – Premature babies born before 22 weeks gestation should not be given intensive care treatment to keep them alive, according to a report released in Britain on Wednesday.

What are your thoughts about this? If you, as a parent, went into early labor and the doctors said that there is a small chance of your baby surviving and that they should not let him/her survive anymore suffering, what would you do or say? I would love to hear your input!
