This paper discusses the ethics of limiting life sustaining treatment for infants who have very low birthweight, infants with spins bifida and people who are elderly and sick. Its author, the National Health and Medical Research Council states that not all aspects have been covered, nor is the paper a comprehensive one. It is designed to raise issues and stimulate further discussion. It should be read in conjunction with "Lives of great value" (File number 10339) and "Euthanasia and refusal to treat" (File number 10340) which were written in response by a number of organisations.
