Deal with the use of either active or passive euthanasia in the case of severely defective newborns. Is it less cruel to give such a child a lethal injection than to allow it to die after 9-10 days of withdrawing food and hydration? If the child is going to die sooner or later anyway, which is morally preferable? Should active euthanasia be a legal option open to doctors and the parents or remain illegal in these types of cases? Give reasons for holding your view.
