Abstract:

This book discusses such poignant themes as the suffering so often associated with neonatal care, including not only that of the infants themselves, but also that of their parents and caretakers. Authors assess the moral significance of this suffering, scrutinize the conflict between science and society over the 'what is best for the infant' principle, and examine the legal concept of privacy as an important element in the refusal of care for seriously ill newborns. -- from Book Jacket.
