The cyclops child post

U all keep saying they should have fed that baby. But, it says right in there the child had no stomach, the food would go straight into the lungs. Do you realize that although the hunger would go away that baby would have gotten very sick and would have experienced very terrible pain if they had fed it? Yes that might have killed the child which was less cruel, but feeding it would have created so much pain and the baby would have possibly lingered longer being fed and ending up with all the formula in its lungs?

But just to let the baby lie there and die, that is cruel. They could have just given the baby something to dull the pain and pass in peace.

 I think most just skimmed to get the basics of the story and hurried off to post.

The baby had a stomach. The trachea and esophagus were fused making it impossible for a feeding tube. That baby still experienced hunger and pain like any other baby.
And the major ethical violation to me was the fact they never even told the mother. She thought the baby was dead.

Well, it DID have a stomach if I remember correctly, but the problem was the esophagus and the windpipe had never separated.
