Birth Defects

Answer the three questions below after reviewing this week’s resources:
1.) Is a life with defects better than no life at all? Support your position.
 

2.) Do you think there is an ethical difference between aborting a baby due to a genetic testing  and giving birth to the baby and not performing surgery (leaving baby to die without interference)? Support your position.

3.) Who should make decisions for impaired newborns? The doctors? The parents? The Courts? Support your decisions.
