Vegans convicted of murdering newborn

  1. ....by starvation.

    I am all about people choosing the way they live their lives, but sometimes folks are so set in their beliefs, that they take the innocent down with them.

    This baby died from starvation....because he was fed a soy-based diet and the nutrition wasn't enough to sustain his life.

    This was also a home-birth where they apparently didn't take the baby to a physician.

    i'm confused even after reading this twice... it said the baby died of starvation but was fed a diet of soy milk and apple juice. are we talking big peoples soy milk or formula..a 6 week old baby is way to young for apple juice and i can certainly see how this happened with regular adult soy milk..this is a shame..this also kind of scared me cause my daughter is 10 weeks old and on soy, but she is a little piggy poo covered in fat rolls...lol

    this is heart-wrenching.
    do vegans not believe in seeking medical care?
    what's up with that?
    a visit to the pediatrician could have been life-saving.
    or maybe not...

    This case really is about ignorant people, the fact they are vegans isn't really important. Their lack of brains bothers me more than their veganism. Vegan babies can do just fine on mother's milk and healthy vegan food from educated parents.

    this is so sad..
    newborns who are not eating enough will go into a shutdown mode
    some one will tell the partents that if the baby will cry and eat when he is hungary not soa baby frequently must be awaken and encouraged to eat, if they are strict vegans she probably did not get a good diet when pregnant. this will leave the baby with insufficient fe in system which will diminish appetite
    if a baby is not having wet/soiled diapers this is a danger signal
    this baby died of ignorance

    I agree with Tweety. Although I'm not vegan & never could be, I believe it's possible to be vegan and healthy, and if you're healthy, you should be making plenty of breastmilk for your baby. Now, if mom didn't have a healthy diet, it's quite possible her milk supply was affected...

    And geez, if you can't or don't want to BF your baby, heaven knows there are enough formulas out there you can surely find one....

    What a sad story. We have to have a license to hunt, drive, and FISH, but any two people with the right parts can make a baby.
