Abstract
Medicine Under the Influence tackles the effects of life-sustaining medical treatment on infants. Through the testimony of doctors and therapists as well as stories told by parents of disabled children, the documentary notes the lack of support available to science's little "miracles." Once saved, the children are often left without the therapy to improve their quality of life and develop to their fullest potential.
