This part here is what freaks me out:

Quote :
"The argument before you is the fact that he has normal cognitive function and normal brain would weigh in his favour."

"But the Trust is concerned that his awareness will simply make his own plight all the more unbearable - not so much now, but as he gets older and catches glimpses of what others can do."

"The application is for the withdrawal of ventilation and to allow Baby RB a peaceful, calm and dignified death."

Does anyone else find that disturbing?

Not only sad, but it makes me really angry that someone else can have the final say over this baby's life, and the father just has to accept it! That is so disgusting.

I guess we don't really know the ins and outs of stories like this. We only get a slice of the whole pie of information.
