Baby Joseph sparks euthanasia debate

Baby Joseph Maraachli with mom, Sana Nader.

The odds were stacked against baby Joseph Maraachli from the day he was born.
Knowing that his sister Zina died from a severe neurological disorder years before, doctors kept a close eye on the Windsor, Ont., infant, hoping for the best.

More than a year later, hopes of seeing Joseph grow into a healthy boy are gone. And the baby, who had been quietly deteriorating in a London hospital for months, is now at the centre of a continent-wide debate over who has the right to decide how a terminally ill child should die.
