Re: Vegan couple sentenced to life over baby's death
I don't think the vegan lifestyle is stupid, but the way these parents went about it is. Well, more like they were under-informed as to how to care for a vegan baby. If the couple had asked for nutritional help on their first visit to the doctor (months before the child was born, going vegan isn't a choice you make overnight), the child would have been fine. A vegan baby requires many supplements to it's diet, and should have little to no fruit juices, escpecially citrus, as the acidity is bad for their stomachs and developing teeth.
As for getting the life sentence, if malicious intent is proven then it is well deserved.
