So I was it on the new, The parents could see jail time if the kid is found to be suffering from malnutrition. They could get 4 years in jail if it causes health problems. I think they even said up to 7 years if the child died.
2mo It would cover children under 16 and the fines would be worse if the child has nutritional issues is under 3 years old. a law that would hold parents legally responsible for feeding their children on "a diet devoid of elements essential for healthy and balanced growth," according to its text. She said, "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."
I think as long as the parents are smart enough to feed their children things that can replace meat at a nutritional level, there's no issue. It is possible to get sufficient iron, protein, etc. without meat products... though it is expensive and time-consuming. If parents have the money and energy to put into a well-rounded vegan diet for their kids, more power to them.
im personally a carnivore technically an omnivore nothing is going to change that but to put someone in jail for raising your kids to be a vegan is really stupid i mean its not like after the kid is older he/she can choose to eat what he/she wants
Good laws. They should do the same in my country. I know plenty of parent who make their child vegetarian and they have a lot of health problem. Doctor said it than a child need meat not some tofu or craps like that
If it causes health problems! Yes, any parent who feeds a diet that results in health problems should be held accountable. This does not mean that parents may not place their child on a vegan diet; they could do so but would be responsible for providing necessary supplements (such as calcium and iron) which are essential for proper growth and which are not provided by a vegan diet.
My sister Jess and I were brought up as veggie. We've never knowingly eaten meat or meat products. It's done us no harm whatsoever. This would be an absolutely stupid law! They obviously don't understand about foods, meat substitutes and nutrition.
I think the issue needs to be separated out: malnourishment should be an offense without it pertaining to veganism.
In ither words, nourishment is a goal with many paths. Which paths you take are up to you, but you have to meet the end goal. If veganism cannot meet a child's nourishment needs, then it is the wrong path.
It will inspire vegan terrorism. Probably Italian legislators are upset they are falling behind the rest of Western Europe, not having suffered a terror attack to use as a weapon against more civil liberties.. Those creepy politicians..
