Dr. Camosy does an excellent job laying out the arguments for personhood and the challenge of seriously imperiled infants. While there is a component of Catholic ethics at play, this book is accessible for secular ethicists and draws upon the leaders of the field, e.g. John Lantos among others. Super dense so take your time to soak in the philosophical arguments.
Surprising from a Catholic. As the parent of a daughter with disabilities who has an amazing quality of life, I can buy Charles C. Camosy leap that automatically damns quality of life because it involves disability. It's this blanket bigotry my daughter and her peers struggle with in every encounter with medical professionals who have abandoned healing for an advocacy to ensure the murder of people with disabilities because the negative assumptions about their lives are so entrenched, and based on little to no deep experience with actual human beings they condemn. If we can spend billions on bombers we can treat children with disabilities.
Realistic, catholic-ethics inspired review of Neonatal Intensive care decisions, and their costly consequences. Slightly skewed perspective based on "future quality of life" appreciations that are hard to introspect when one is not the parent of a bad-outcome baby, or the baby itself. How can we judge the quality of life of another human, especially if cost is a predominant factor? Recommend reading by ethicians, Advanced Practice Nurse Practicioners, Neonatologists, and hospital administrators who care (rare).
