Abstract This thesis focuses on the special features of “wrongful life” casesand the ethical philosophical questions they arise. We attempt to form a successful definition of the term in the Greek language that will agree with the outcomes of the ethical and legal reasoning regarding the basic dilemma: a problematic life versus non-existence. The scope of this thesis is to conclude whether the handicapped child should be compensated by the doctor who negligently failed to diagnose or inform the child’s parents about potential birth defects. Is the doctor morally responsible? Should he be held liable for the existence of the impaired child? Can a life ever be considered a source of damage? Is handicapped life of less value? Through the analysis of moral and legal theories as well as the comparative overview of the international- basically European and Greek case lawwe find out that the moral evaluation of the doctor’s behavior is in coincidence with the general practice of courts to dismiss wrongful life lawsuits. Contrary to the argument for recognizing wrongful life actions based on the lack of social support structures for the vulnerable and retarded children, we conclude that their financial support is a matter of social policy and it should not be passed on the doctor who did not cause the impaired condition.
