I just watched an episode of Law & Order: SVU where a mother was convicted of murdering her 1 month old who had Tay-Sachs and said she didn't want her baby to suffer.
It brought up a question: Could you kill your 1 month old baby after finding out that he or she had a terminal condition that would cause them to be in a lot of pain and there was no cure or anything to help? And why?
I myself wouldn't be able to. I look at my 11 week old son and think that even if he was in horrific pain from something I would never be able to rid him of, I couldn't do it. I would how ever do everything in my power to make sure he was a comfortable as possible until his time was up.
What would you do and why?
