BRITAIN'S Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecology is reportedly calling on doctors to consider euthanasing "the sickest of newborns" which it says can disable healthy families.
The Sunday Times newspaper said today the proposal was in reaction to the number of such children who were surviving because of medical advances.
The college argued "active euthanasia" should be considered for the good of families, to spare parents the emotional burden and financial hardship of bringing up the sickest babies.
The proposal is contained in the college's submission to an inquiry into ethical issues raised by the policy of prolonging life in newborn babies.
Euthanasia of newborns is illegal in Britain. continues news.com.au
