Where else but in Fwance:
This happened a while ago, but three months after her birth, one of my daughters was not gaining weight fast enough according to the pediatrician. My wife was breast feeding her and instead, put her on the bottle. The weight gain went to normal in a very short time. She felt very badly that she could not provide the proper nutrition and that she mught have been hurting our baby.Parents should be more concerned about their child's well being than any "natural" lifestyle considerations. Lefties always feel good about making sacrifices for their beliefs. Unfortunately they always make someone else to pay for their sacrifice. Sergine and Joel are about to find out what those costs are as they face up to thirty years in prison if convicted.
Two strict vegans have gone on trial in France charged with "neglect or food deprivation" after the death of their breastfed 11-month-old daughter who was found to be suffering from vitamin deficiency.
Sergine and Joel Le Moaligou called an ambulance to their home in the village of Saint-Maulvis – 90 miles north of Paris – in March 2008 after their daughter Louise became listless. By the time paramedics arrived, the baby had died.
The police were alerted after the ambulance crew noticed the baby was pale and thin and a doctor refused to issue a death certificate. A postmortem showed the child, who had been fed only on her 37-year-old mother's milk, weighed 5.7kg when she should have been about 8kg.
[..]At the time of their daughter's death, they were running an organic food business and refused to eat any animal products. Daquo said they had a mistrust of traditional medicine and preferred to treat their children's complaints with advice from books.
"The couple did not follow the doctor's advice to take the baby to hospital when they went for her nine-month checkup and found she was suffering from bronchitis and was losing weight," he said. Instead they treated her with cabbage poultices, mustard and camphor and washed her with earth and clay instead of giving her baths, the court heard.
