  1. Which Newborn Infants Are Too Expensive to Treat? Camosy and Rationing in Intensive Care.D. Wilkinson - 2013 - Journal of Medical Ethics 39 (8):502-506.
    Are there some newborn infants whose short- and long-term care costs are so great that treatment should not be provided and they should be allowed to die? Public discourse and academic debate about the ethics of newborn intensive care has often shied away from this question.
