A Scottsdale couple have been charged with child abuse after their three children, who police said were put on a type of vegan diet, were found malnourished and severely underweight.

Dr. Janice Piatt, a pediatrician at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, later told police, "I have never seen such stunting before except maybe in Africa. It was beyond severe malnutrition."

A vegan couple who solely fed mother’s milk to their baby daughter before she died because of vitamin deficiency were facing life prison sentences today.
Sergine and Joel Le Moaligou appeared before a judge and jury in Amiens, northern France, charged with neglect of Louise, their 11-month-old child.
Both are militant vegans whose diet forbids them eating any animal products whatsoever, and they only use alternative medicine.

CORPSE EATING MOTHER STARVES INFANT TO DEATH:
A mother of three is accused of starving her youngest child to death and has been jailed on a charge of second-degree murder.
Latisha Thomas, 34, 1323 Lasseigne Road, Thibodaux, was arrested Thursday in connection with the Feb. 9 death of 2-month-old Angel Thomas, police said.
The mother called paramedics that day to say the baby wasn't breathing, but the child was dead when they arrived, authorities said.
Angel Thomas' body was taken to the Jefferson Parish Coroner's Office, where forensic pathologists performed an in-depth autopsy that took several weeks, police said.
Last week, investigators determined Angel Thomas died of severe malnutrition, and that her mother had neglected to properly feed her in the weeks following her birth, even when she knew the child was suffering, authorities said.
Latisha Thomas was arrested at her home Thursday without incident on a second-degree murder warrant. She is being held in the Lafourche Parish jail in lieu of a $500,000 bond. If convicted, she faces mandatory life in prison.
Latisha Thomas also has two sons, authorities said, who are now in the custody of the state Department of Children and Family Services.
Lafourche Coroner's Lead Investigator Mark Goldman declined to release specific details about the autopsy.
Sheriff's spokesman Brennan Matherne said in an email that Latisha Thomas was questioned shortly after her daughter's death but the autopsy was the reason for the months between the death and arrest. Matherne refused to say whether she confessed or whether investigators believe she abused her other children.
This is the third arrest on a murder charge in Lafourche Parish this year.
Efforts to reach Latisha and Angel Thomas' family this morning were unsuccessful.

ATLANTA -- The Georgia Supreme Court has upheld the murder convictions and life prison sentences given to an Atlanta vegan couple who were charged with allowing their baby to starve to death.

Prosecutors said Jade Sanders and Lamont Thomas, who lived a vegan lifestyle and ate no animal products, were living in the city's Buckhead neighborhood when Jade gave birth to their son, Crown Shakur.

Yet ANOTHER CORPSE EATING MOTHER STARVES INFANT TO DEATH:
Lafourche Parish authorities said a 34-year-old woman was arrested on a murder charge in the death of her 2-month-old daughter.
Sheriff Craig Webre said LaTisha Thomas called 911 on Feb. 9 and reported her newborn was not breathing.
Paramedics and sheriff's deputies rushed to the scene, but when they arrived they discovered the baby was already dead.
The Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office said LaTisha Thomas of Thibodaux is accused of killing her baby, Angel Thomas. Latisha was arrested on Thursday.
The infant's grandmother, Penny Richardson, said she has a hard time believing LaTisha neglected her daughter.
"It's hurting. It's sad. I don't understand it cause she was a healthy baby and I seen the baby. She was so healthy. She was smiling, eating," Richardson said.
Brennan Matherne, a spokesman for the Lafourche Parish Sheriff, said an autopsy conducted by the Jefferson Parish Forensic Center revealed the infant died from severe malnourishment.
"Doctors, through autopsy, and they consulted with pediatricians in that field, essentially determined the child had gone without a significant enough nutrition for a certain period of time," Matherne said.
Detectives said additional questioning of the mother indicated she had not properly fed the baby and didn't try to get help dealing with it.
She was booked into the Lafourche Parish Detention Center on a second degree murder charge.
Her bond was set at $500,000.
Thomas has two other children. They were put into the custody of the Department of Children and Family Services.

You keep posting the same story and pretending it's a different story?

Again, where does it claim they were meat eaters?

Is it possible they were vegans?

And ANOTHER:
A MEAT EATING mother faces life in prison for starving her daughter to death and dumping her body in the trash because the baby didn't fit in with the rest of the family.
Tania (living on welfare and drinking 40's) Coleman, 21, was convicted today of first-degree murder in Erie, Pennsylvania for the demise of her 14-month-old child, whose decomposed body was found in a suitcase on the street.
Prosecutors said Coleman's chubby-cheeked child Alayja was deprived of food and drink because she was considered the family 'runt.'
Aren't "40S" vegan friendly?

Sounds like a vegan diet to me.

Meat Eating Mother 'starved 7-week-old son to 8lbs and neglected daughter, 2, who had scabies and MRSA infection'
A mother-of-two has been charged with domestic violence after starving her newborn baby to the brink of death and neglecting her two-year-old daughter, police said.
Katherine Amanda Mattern, 23, is accused of 'withholding the basic necessities of life' from her seven-week-old son Liam Alexander Lee, according to court documents.
The woman, from Burien, Washington mistreated her son for such a long time that without medical treatment he would have died, doctors said, adding that any illness could have proved fatal.
Doctors at Children’s Hospital in Seattle were alarmed to find that the boy was suffering from severe malnutrition when they examined him on May 15 and called child protective services.
Mattern told doctors she thought that her son 'looked a little skinny'. The baby was now being cared for in hospital and his condition had improved.
The mother had previously been investigated by child protective services in Oregon over the care of her now two-year-old daughter Abigail Lilly. She left the state in August to move back to Washington to live with relatives.
Child protective services in the Seattle area contacted Mattern in February after it was reported that her daughter had scratches on her face
The little girl had survived at the filthy home in Washington state, where they lived with Mattern's mother, by foraging for food, it was reported.
She was believed to have had better nutrition than her baby brother because she had spent some time in the care of other family members.
The home was described by authorities as 'cluttered and unsanitary'. Both children were treated for scabies while the two-year-old also had an MRSA infection. Abigail and Liam were now being looked after by the state.
Mattern is reportedly married to a registered sex offender who was banned from having contact with children.
Mattern was arrested yesterday and charged with criminal mistreatment in the second degree – domestic violence of her son. She has not been charged in relation to any abuse of her daughter but authorities said that the case is under review. She faces up to five years in prison if found guilty.

Keep flailing and FAILING, you loser trolls, the FACT remains that for any asinine case you come up with of NEGLECT, these are THOUSANDS of cases of neglect, abuse and MURDER of corpse eating parents. Flail away, losers!!!!LOL!!
We're not talking about other kinds of neglect.
We're talking about a shitty crappy vegan diet being unable to support human life.
An adult has vast stores of vitamins and minerals (except vitamin c) in their body fat, so it might take years for the full effect of dietary deficiency to show up.
However, a baby need immediate good nutrition or sickness and death will be the result, especially in a baby from a vegan mother who didn't get good nutrition in the womb and who's starving mother has deficient vegan breast milk.

A western Pennsylvania woman has been sentenced to 21˝ to 43 years in prison for the death of her 2-month-old son who was malnourished and left outside in near-freezing temperatures in January 2010.
Twenty-three-year-old Royanne Darr, of Greenville, was sentenced Monday by a Mercer County judge. She had previously pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and child endangerment. The child’s father, 25-year-old Michael Rabold, has pleaded no contest to the same charges and will be sentenced Sept. 2.
Police say the boy was on the porch because a relative suggested that would help a breathing disorder, but he was forgotten and left outside for more than an hour.
The Herald of Sharon says the sentencing judge castigated Darr saying,“There were steaks in the refrigerator and you were playing Scrabble while your child died.”
Two older siblings are in foster care.

So how does this address the fact that vegans too abuse their kids physically and mentally and can starve/malnourish their kids?

Seems to me that you don't understand Sagan at all sweetie.

GET HELP, you wretched, miserable, envious OLD psycho.
Gawd you are so pathetic. You don't understand anything about Carl Sagan, psycho, and that is a FACT!! By all means PLEASE keep flailing about and FAILING, you are sooo good at it!!
Obsession and failure is demonstrated quite clearly with your emotional rants here all day long. Fortunately, I've read quite a bit of Sagan when I was younger. I'm not rattled when you evade the topic because it's clearly evident you don't understand what he meant by the baloney detector. You can't even pronounce let alone define "ad hominem" or "non-sequitir." You practice those each time you come here and yet you claim to understand Sagan? Now that is some funny shit. Sagan never was a vegan.

<quoted text>WRONG as always, dipshit. NEGLECT is NEGLECT and you are trying to claim that VEGAN parents are neglectful when the FACT is that more than 99% of child NEGLECT case are from MEAT EATING parents. You flailed and you FAILED like you always do. You are CLUELESS and know NOTHING about veganism. NOTHING. You haven't 'struck' anything besides your empty head into the wall. I'll be sure to keep your asinine thread full of as many neglectful CORPSE EATING parents as possible. the list is disturbingly endless..
What you posted were parents that fed their children nothing.

The vegans were trying to feed their child a vegan diet and failed with fatal consequences. There is a difference. You're just to ignorant to recognize it.

It's ok though. We come to accept your ignorance for what it is.

HAC,

It's been a very long time since I had an infant in the house so I'm not up to date on the food products available but aren't there soy based formulas that are fortified with the necessary vitamins and minerals? Dietary supplements? If the child did not respond to those in a healthy manner, why would a vegan parent not feed their children something they did respond to in a healthy manner even if it meant some animal products? Shouldn't a vegan diet be an individual choice and wouldn't it be better to raise a healthy child capable of making that choice? You must admit that, whether the parents are vegan or omnivorous, all of the children in these articles have suffered because of choices made by the parents.

Another thing.
If soy based formulas are so good, how come they need to be fortified with vitamins and minerals?
