So Avoidable, So Very Easily Avoidable

Vegan parents guilty in infant murder, 6 wk old starved to death fed diet of soy milk & apple juice. This is a horrible, horrible crime and it was so very easy to avoid and these two wouldn't have even had to compromise their vegan principles to do so. This was negligence compounded by dogged stupidity in the face of reality.

And Jade Sanders and Lamont Thomas will have to spend the rest of their lives knowing they starved their son to death. How absolutely fucking awful. I truly mean that.

But I don't understand how you could have a baby that's getting smaller and weaker and you DON'T GO SEE A DAMNED DOCTOR! How do you ignore the signs, the very obvious signs that something is seriously wrong?
