“The bill claims that depriving minors of animal products can cause neurological disorders and anemia by leaving them iron-, zinc-, and vitamin-B12-deficient.”
Poor gorillas, orang-utans, elephants, horses, deers and cattle. They are all vegans and must suffer from neurological disorders and anemia, being iron-, zinc-, and vitamin-B12-deficient.
Poor, weak, suffering animals …
The meat of some of these animals is considered to be the best source of vitamin-B12 and protein, but where did they get their B12 and protein from???
Maybe they should jail all these animals as well, because they too are making their children go vegan.
That said, being a vegan does not automatically mean eating healthy.
There are lots of vegans that have a horrible, horrible diet.
And yes, children’s health would suffer immensely from such a crappy diet, almost like being on a McD junk food diet.
However, there also have been “brilliant” parents, with “normal” eating habits, who fed their toddlers left over pizza (or whatever kind of food has been left over) by blending it in a high speed mixer and that way killed their children with this newly created baby food diet.
Most children suffer greatly from eating a SAD (Standard American Diet).
A carefully selected vegan diet or even a raw vegan diet is absolutely great for your health and for your children.
– Mussolini Would Be Proud: Italy Proposes Jailing “Reckless” Vegan Parents:
If parliamentarian Elvira Savino has her way, Italian parents who insist on a vegan diet for their children will risk up to four years in jail. In her shockingly tyrannical over-reach, the center-right party member seeks to “stigmatize the reckless and dangerous eating behavior imposed by parents” who make children go vegan.
“I have nothing against vegans or veganism as long as it is a free choice by adults,” she told Reuters in a telephone interview on Wednesday, days after she presented the proposed law in the lower house Chamber of Deputies.
“I just find it absurd that some parents are allowed to impose their will on children in an almost fanatical, religious way, often without proper scientific knowledge or medical consultation,” she said.
“Do-it-yourself on these matters terrorizes me.”
As GrubStreet.com reports, under the ‘Savino’ law, according to La Repubblica, raising anyone under the age of 17 on such a diet would be an offense punishable by up to six years in prison.
