The underlying assumptions/presuppositions to this situation is that: all human are born perfect, deforms would only hinder a person, parents know what is best for his/her child, or even lack of money to care for a sick infant.
In Exodus 20:13 ,“Thou shalt not kill” it is telling us that killing another human being is against the saying of God. We do not have the right, whether we think it is best for the child, to kill him/her because of a deformity or not. We are God’s creations. He is the one that gave us life, therefore we do not have the right to take it.
