A vegan couple gets life over the death of their baby. This is sad for so many reasons.
The first is obviously that a baby died.
The second is that the parents ignorance/stupidity did it, the death was completely needless.
Third, if the quote is to be believed "I loved my son - and I did not starve him" just shows that the parents are still clueless, even after this tragedy.

Where was their prenatal care? Where was their postpartum care?
If you're a vegan, you know that paying attention to nutrition is important because your diet is very restricted. If you're going to have a baby, you have to know that it is going to need special nutrition.
I was going to accuse the couple of taking veganism too far and not feeding their baby the obvious breast milk (breast milk isn't vegan), but after a quick searchi I found a slightly longer article here
They did feed the baby some breast milk.
It does sound like they starved the baby. It appears they do not feel they are to blame in the baby's death. It is sad, and they should be punished.
Note: breast milk has everything a baby needs for the first year of life. Oh, and it's free you cheap bastards!
