Severely disabled babies to be killed at birth

Daily Mail reported The Church of England has broken with tradition dogma by calling for doctors to be allowed to let sick newborn babies die.

Has the Church of England abandoned what Christ taught.
Christians have long argued that life should preserved at all costs - but a bishop representing the national church has now sparked controversy by arguing that there are occasions when it is compassionate to leave a severely disabled child to die. And the Bishop of Southwark, Tom Butler, who is the vice chair of the Church of England's Mission and Public Affairs Council, has also argued that the high financial cost of keeping desperately ill babies alive should be a factor in life or death decisions.
Is it all about money?
The shock new policy from the church has caused outrage among the disabled.
