  • Yes, imprisoning parents for enforcing a vegan diet constitutes too much restriction of personal freedom.

    Yes, imprisoning parents for enforcing a vegan diet for their children would be going too far towards restricting personal freedom. If a vegan diet were actually harmful or life threatening, then demanding that the parents abide by different dietary standards might be necessary, but there are many steps to take prior to considering imprisonment.

  • It violates parental rights and throws a monkey wrench in biblical upbringing.

    Yes, I believe that parents all over the world should have the freedom to raise their children any way they like, and that includes "forcing" them to eat a vegan diet. It always pains me when the government tries to take over parental rights. But, of course, I know that it's all a worldwide conspiracy to prevent today's youth from having any kind of biblical upbringing whatsoever. First, they took away the right to discipline the children appropriately. Now, they're trying to remove the right to feed the children foods that agree with biblical standards. These lawmakers will answer to the one true judge eventually.

  • Yes, this new Italian law goes too far in restricting individual freedom.

    The new Italian law which prevents parents from forcing their kids to eat a vegan diet goes too far in restricting individual freedom. As long as parents feed their children proper nutrition, the government should not be able to tell parents what to feed their children. Furthermore, if parents are using their own money to feed their children, the government has no right to tell them what kind of food to buy.

  • Yes, sending parents to prison who force a vegan diet on tehir children goes too far

    Yes, sending parents to prison who force a vegan diet on their children goes too far. A vegan diet is not harmful to children. This is not abuse. Children who are forced to eat a vegan diet growing up may not actually miss meat. The parents do not need to be sent to prison.
