In 2005, the Groningen Protocol was published, a guide for promoting child euthanasia in newborns. An article has now been published (BMC Medical Ethics 2014; 15:74) evaluating the opinion of the Austrian population on this issue. Of those surveyed, 63.6% were against euthanasia in newborns, while 36.4% were in favour of it or undecided. As the study authors state, “the majority of the Austrian population rejects the idea of neonatal euthanasia for severely impaired newborns”.
