Judge Rules That Doctors Can Take Baby off Life Support Against Mother’s Wishes

Ann Mongoven, associate director of Health Care Ethics, quoted in The Washington Post.

"When doctors talk about whether a treatment would be 'futile,' Mongoven said they should consider the odds that it would help and, if it did, the magnitude of the benefit. She said in Tinslee’s case, the chances of continued treatment helping and the size of the potential benefit both seemed very small."
