Premature babyImage by Elin B via Flickr

Miss Capewell, 23, said doctors refused to even see her son Jayden, who lived for almost two hours without any medical support.

She said he was breathing unaided, had a strong heartbeat and was even moving his arms and legs, but medics refused to admit him to a special care baby unit.

Miss Capewell is now fighting for a review of the medical guidelines.

Who will be making the difficult decisions on care for the beginning of life and the end of life? This is America and not England, but these situations happen in all walks of life and to all peoples. Rationing, the right to die, the right to live might not be a matter for just you and your doctor, someone else just might be in the room with you!!!
