Why do liberal parents insist on pushing their lifestyles and beliefs on their young children?
How selfish and irresponsible are you as a parent to place a growing child on an unhealthy raw diet? It’s unthinkable that any sane person would do something like this.
And the tragic and deadly result — the poor child starved to death.
As a mother, I am appalled beyond words.
If you want to live your life as a Vegan, and only eat raw foods, so be it. But have enough common sense to understand what a growing human body needs to survive. Calories, fat, carbs, protein. Not raw kale patties.
I am actually not even exaggerating, because according to the despicable mother (who has several children, by the way) the family was on a diet consisting of:
Mangoes, rambutans, bananas, and avocados.
I hope they throw the book at these people and they go to prison and are forced to eat NON-VEGAN prison food for the rest of their lives.
Two vegan parents from Florida are accused of starving their 18-month-old son to death by feeding him only raw fruits and vegetables, officials said.
Sheila O’Leary, 35, and Ryan O’Leary, 30, face charges of manslaughter and child neglect in the death last month of their son — who weighed just 17 pounds, the Florida Myers News-Press reported.
Police said the mom called 911 on Sept. 27 to report that the boy was cold and not breathing, while her husband attempted to resuscitate him at their Cape Coral home.
When authorities arrived, the malnourished child was pronounced dead, according to the report.
The mom told officers that the family was vegan and her four kids were on a raw food diet that consisted of mangoes, rambutans, bananas and avocados.
She told authorities that before the toddler’s death, he had not eaten solid food in a week but was being breastfed. She said she believed that was due to teething.
Both parents turned themselves in to police shortly after the medical examiner determined on Nov. 6 that the boy died from malnutrition, the Florida Myers News-Press reported.
They were booked into Lee County jail, where their bond was set at $250,000. The couple is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 9. [New York Post]
