Abstract

This article traces how the rise of respect for children’s consent during the 1980s has fallen during the 1990s, and questions whether lawyers and doctors can be relied on to make fair decisions for each child they consider. Using examples mainly drawn from heart surgery, the article concludes that medical and legal decisions would be better informed if more account was taken of children’s and parents’ views.
