Severely Impaired Premature Babies - Technology has allowed premature and critically ill newborn babies to survive, but sometimes with major problems. Dr. John Lantos, Ethicist at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, says, "The big question today is, of the survivors, how many survive without devastating neurologic impairments or other chronic medical problems." Betty Rollin speaks with physicians, families and a chaplain at Children's Mercy's Intensive Care unit about wrestling with issues of life and death. The Sarajevo Haggadah - Beginning sundown April 14th, Jews will be observing Passover with the Seder, the special meal which commemorates their ancestors' exodus from slavery in Egypt. The book that guides the ritual is the Haggadah. Kim Lawton reports on one of the most famous Haggadahs in the world, the Sarajevo Haggadah, named for the Bosnian city where it is now kept. The rare, beautifully illuminated manuscript was created more than 600 years ago in Spain, and many see its story as a compelling symbol of the Exodus.
