Incompatible with life is a death sentence to most children with a range of disorders. It is made by health care professionals and they state that due to a disorder or defect, a newborn will pass away prior to, during or just after birth. This is INACCURATE!!!! Some of these HUMAN BEINGS survive weeks, months and sometimes even years. Some of these "Incompatible with life" children have extensive health issues BUT there are some who need little to no interventions and live normal, healthy lives.

Get rid of the term "Incompatible with life". Too many children are not given treatments needed to survive. Treat all newborns EQUALLY
