The bioethical dilemma of late termination of pregnancy in the Italian scenario is discussed in the light of the Italian legislation governing this issue (194/1978). The law obliges practitioners to evaluate the viability of the fetus/newborn at birth in order to decide strategies of treatment. If there is a chance of survival then the neonate could be a candidate for resuscitation and intensive care.
