Muslim Takes on Allah

The father of a severely disabled baby at the centre of a landmark High Court right-to-life case says it is up to God to "give life and take it away".

However, on closer examination... The baby cannot breathe unaided and is on life support. The hospital want to take the baby off life-support and the parents are fighting this. So, one might think that by taking the baby off life-support the doctors want God to decide, and by wanting to keep the baby on life-support the father is defying his creator. One might say that, by allowing the baby to be born with this condition God had already made His decisionabout whether it should live or die. Unsurprisingly the father seems unable to recognise the irony in his position.
