Vegan parents charged in death of baby raised on mother's milk; facing 30 years in prisonSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Tue, 03/29/2011 - 13:26
(NaturalNews) In the latest outrage of the global "vegan police" striking out against those who follow a healthy diet, a couple in France is now facing up to 30 years in prison because they refused to feed their baby junk infant formula and instead breastfed her. The baby died at 11 months of age, and when ambulance workers arrived and found the baby dead, instead of consoling the parents, they called the police. Why? Because the parents were vegans.
And because the parents were vegans, an autopsy was performed that found the baby was deficient in vitamin A and vitamin B12, which the deputy prosecutor claimed could have been related to the vegan diet of the parents. The couple has now been charged with "food deprivation followed by death" and faces up to 30 years in prison.
Feed 'em more Happy Meals, they say
Just so you're getting all this straight, keep in mind that if the ambulance had shown up and found a dead baby in a family whose cupboards were stuffed full of junk food and fast food -- sugary cereals, McDonald's food wrappers, frozen pizza, ice cream and donuts -- that would not have seemed suspicious at all. You could have a baby die with a half-eaten bacon double cheeseburger in its hand and that wouldn't even raise an eyebrow. It is only the fact that the parents were vegans that the police were called.
