Vegan couple sentenced to life over baby's death

http://criminal.lawyers.com/news-hea...607132271.html

Believe it or not there are apologists out there saying that the sentence was too harsh.

Where in hell were the grandparents? They made it for the trial, they surely could have made it for the child. Maybe it does take a village to raise a child.

Bizarre. Really the vegan thing has nothing to do with it. It's outright stupidity. Has the makings of a case for enforced sterilization in child neglect cases.

I wonder if the parents aren't eating the proper combinations of foods, and it's dimming their wits.

Cow's milk is also freely given. I've been to several dairy farms as part of my job, and the cows love to be milked. They are in pain if they don't get milked.

Same with cats.

The following is from the Vegan Society definition of veganism, "In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals"

Humans are animals, so I assumed that breast milk is included in this definition.

Assume away. However you can't ask a cow's permission and cows are artificially induced to be in that state. I have many vegan friends and some fruitarian aquaintances and all their babies are breastfeed. Only an idiot would argue that this is not right. And yes, there are some idiots about. As seen here.

I think the point HLJ is trying to make is that human breast milk is not vegan by definition, not that it's wrong for vegans to breast-feed their babies...
