An update. Apparently the mother would only accept palliative care for her children because their disability would shorten their lives. I have the same disability and spent a lot of time thinking I wouldn't live very long. I'm 56, so how long does a life need to be to be worth living?

That mother was mentally ill. Maybe it was because of the stress of caring for the children. But surely the social worker or doctors share some blame for not noticing that she demanded only palliative care, a sign that she was not putting the children's best interests first as she should have.

The behavior of mentally ill people sometimes tracks with society's messed up attitudes.

A lot of people are mentally ill and still don't murder their own children....
