EUTHANASIA

Yoel Jakobovitz, "Neonatal Euthanasia: Jewish views of a contemporary dilemma", Tradition 22/3 (1986), 13-30. - The author offers a list of eight principles which he contends govern the Jewish attitudes in the tragic situation of neonatal infants born with severe life threatening conditions, e.g. Downs Syndrome and Intestinal Atresia. Indeed the principles suggest the Jewish views on all cases in which euthanasia becomes a consideration, even in cases of prolonging life only for the purpose of removing organs for later transplantation.
