"any parent is obligated to

"any parent is obligated to provide food, water, shelter, medical care to a child for 18 years."

Why 18-years? I know what current law is, but we're talking about the philosophical justification, if any, for current law. The philosophical conversation has to happen before and without relying on the legal one, to avoid a circular reference (what is moral is what is legal, and what is legal is what is moral).

"Ending life is killing."

I dont think i disagreed. The issue is if witholding support, even for someone who is "depending" on you is "killing".
