    The Groningen Protocol: Another Perspective.A. B. Jotkowitz - 2006 - Journal of Medical Ethics 32 (3):157-158.
    The Groningen protocol allows for the euthanasia of severely ill newborns with a hopeless prognosis and unbearable suffering. We understand the impetus for such a protocol but have moral and ethical concerns with it. Advocates for euthanasia in adults have relied on the concept of human autonomy, which is lacking in the case of infants.
