    Twin pregnancy reduction is not an ‘all or nothing’ problem: a response to Räsänen.Dunja Begović, Elizabeth Chloe Romanis & E. J. Verweij - 2022 - Journal of Medical Ethics 48 (2):139-141.

    Viability, abortion and extreme prematurity: a critique.Lien De Proost, E. J. Verweij, Rosa Geurtzen, Geertjan Zuijdwegt, Eduard Verhagen & Hafez Ismaili M’Hamdi - forthcoming - Clinical Ethics.
    This article examines the ethical validity of using viability as the cutoff point for abortion in the Netherlands, in view of potential changes to the Dutch perinatal care guideline. According to the Dutch Penal Code, abortion is permitted until viability: the point at which a fetus can survive outside the womb with technological assistance.
