Euthanasia of hopelessly ill babies must be approached with the greatest caution, surrounded by a bodyguard of sensible rules. Every case must be individually considered on its medical circumstances and the ethical belief of the parents.

Hastening the end of seriously ill and handicapped infants goes on all over the world — and always has done — but only the Dutch have the honesty to discuss it openly today, seeking a commonsense and public solution. They are to be commended for their courage.
