Evil vegans are at it again.
It wasn’t enough that they refused to contribute to the abuse and slaughter of animals and the violent demise of the environment brought on by the meat and dairy industry – now they’re sacrificing innocent human babies!
A vegan couple in France who fed their 11-month-old daughter only breast milk are now on trial for the death of their child.
It’s plastered all over the news and the media and anti-vegans are going to town with it.
Apparently both Mr and Mrs Le Moaligou were opposed to traditional medicines, and did not follow doctor’s advice to take their baby to hospital when she was suffering from bronchitis and was losing weight when they went for the nine-month check-up. They opted for natural remedies such as applying clay or cabbage poultices.
The cause of the Moaligou baby’s death was listed as a pneumonia-related illness. But because the autopsy also revealed the child suffered from a severe deficiency of vitamins A and B12, her tragic death has turned into a yet another public vegan hate-on.
I am a vegan and not vitamin deficient. I know many vegan adults, babies and children who are not deficient.
I don’t understand the connection between the vitamin A deficiency and the veganism. Vitamin A can be found in Apricots, Cantaloup, Mango, Melon, Nectarines, Plums, Broccoli, Carrots, Chard, Collards Greens, Endive, Chicory, Romaine, Kale, Mustard greens, Peas, Red Peppers, Plantain, Pumpkin, Spinach, Squash, Sweet Potato… to name a few.
I also don’t understand how drinking human milk vs cow’s milk is inhumane for a HUMAN baby. FYI cows are also vegans so I’m guessing they are also child abusers.
So despite the fact that babies can and do thrive on nothing but breast milk for the first year of life, AND despite the fact that Vitamin A can be found in a variety of non-meat foods, AND despite the fact that Vegan Vitamin B supplements do exist AND despite the fact that plenty of vegans are not vitamin deficient AND despite the fact that plenty of meat-eaters are deficient AND despite the fact that the baby’s cause of death was pneumonia, the couple has been charged with “neglect or food deprivation followed by death” and face up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
I’m just wondering, had the mother eaten nothing but Kraft dinner and McDonalds day in and day out, as many people do, would the parents still be being charged with food deprivation?
I think not.

“I also don’t understand how drinking human milk vs cow’s milk is inhumane for a HUMAN baby. FYI cows are also vegans so I’m guessing they are also child abusers.”
This made me laugh!
Countless numbers of meat eaters have killed their babies through not caring for their child’s basic food and health needs. But you never read “meat eaters kill baby!” in the papers. Why? Because that would give omni’s a bad name. But the second some idiot that happens to be vegan does something wrong, you can bet your life that it’ll be front page news. “Cause of death: veganism”. no. cause of death: stupidity.

In their defense, vegans do hate babies.
I only fed mine (all three of them) solid food because I needed them to be strong enough to do the dishes and scrub the floors with their toothbrushes.
Humans are omnivores, even if you feed a cow meat, by its DNA, it will be an omnivore.January 5, 2012 at 3:08 am
Vegans say we have no natural adaptions to eat meat,but do we have special adaptations to graze and get fruits from trees?No,we use tractors and tools to get our veggies/fruits out of the wild.We have a special adaptation most animals do not have:high intelligence. And you say we marinate meat with veggies to make it taste like veggies, no, we marinate it to give it flavor because we have intelligence & food is no longer just survival, taste and formulas matter,&,humans used to eat raw meat and dirty fruit, but we evolved so much to our tool filled enviroment that we now can only eat cooked meat since we invented fire,& cleaned and harvested veggies since we made the hoe and used work animalslong ago. And and try to rip a potato out of the ground, & eat it, right there & then. Not very good, is it? Whats that? Why of course you got sick from the dirt and germs. But we have these things called tools & intelligence, & from evolution to make things our bodies are not adapted to bearable. But evolution forgot you, it seems. “Kill with your fangs”. Graze and eat from trees with your super long neck, toe fingers, monkey tail, and 5 stomaches, dumbass. Oh, and another animal that eats like people? The otter. I see no fangs, claws, or crushing strenth on those. But they are intelligent, and use rocks to crack open clams. You can’t say it is not natural for otters to eat clams.

I would respond to your questions but it’s clear you’re not looking for information, and that you’re only looking for an argument.
But I will say that unfounded argument and name-calling ( it’s spelled dumb-ass by the way) probably isn’t the best example of this evolution and intelligence that you speak of.
If you’re ever starving in the bush, without sight of a grocery store, there is more than just potatoes eat. Carrots are great right out of the ground. So are tomatoes, peppers, peas, cucumber and most other vegetables – not to mention almost every fruit on earth.
