When presented with hypothetical cases of newborns with a range of correctable and uncorrectable medical conditions, 10 pro-life respondents recommended treatment in virtually all cases, while 10 pro-choice respondents were more likely to recommend withholding nourishment and food, recommend limited or no medical treatment, and change initial recommendations.
