BBC NEWS | Health | Life of sick baby 'intolerable'

Stories like this remind me how lucky we are to have a happy healthy baby.

Although I tend to heed the advice of the medical experts, I wonder what I would really do were I to find myself in the tragic circumstances of these parents.

From the comfort of total impartiality, I hope I don't sound complacent or critical when I say that I think the child's quality of life should be the deciding factor, not its longevity or the parents desire to extend that.

I just hope that all concerned find the wisdom and courage to do the right thing, whatever that may be.
