Baby Doe

An infant with Down syndrome born in April, 1982, in Indiana who had a tracheo-oesophageal fistula that required surgery for the infant’s prolonged survival; given the infant’s anticipated poor quality of life, the parents decided to withhold treatment with the approval of the local court and the child died within 6 days
