Description - Deciding Who Lives by Renee R. Anspach

In this probing look at the reality of everyday choices in neonatal intensive care units, Renee Anspach explores the life-and-death dilemmas that have fueled debate. Using case studies taken during 16 months of extensive interviewing and observation, Anspach examines the roles of parents, doctors, nurses and bioethicists in deciding whether critically ill newborns - be they premature, terminally ill, or severely malformed - should be saved by medical technology, or at least kept alive a little longer.
