This chapter presents a 1988 commentary on the impact of the rapid developments in perinatal medicine on the community. It raises the question of whether affected parents share neonatologists' enthusiasm for the unprecedented increase in survival rates for the smallest and most malformed neonates. It points out that the attitudes of parents have not always agreed with authorities.
