Neera Bhatia explores arbitrary decisions to withdraw or withhold life-sustaining treatment from critically impaired infants and addresses the controversial question, which lives are too expensive to treat?
The book will be of great interest and use to scholars and students of bioethics, medical law, and medical practitioners.
