Vegetarian Couple Denied Chance of Adopting a Child

A vegetarian couple in Greece has been denied the chance to adopt a child in fear they could impose their vegetarian diet on the child. "We asked the University of Crete medical school on the issue and they said the child's diet must include meat, fish, etc," the head of the city's welfare services, Spyros Epitropakis, said.

How sad it is that people are discriminated against for their choice of a compassionate diet! It is also surprising that still, on this day and age, medical doctors are ignorant about the health benefits of a well-balanced plant-based diet. It is important to note that many millions of people thrive on plant-based diets. These diets are recommended by many health organizations on the basis of the many benefits they have, such as the prevention and rate reduction of chronic diseases and even the reversal of diabetes, heart disease, etc.

Last but not least, the spiritual benefits of adopting a plant-based diet should not be discounted. Encouraging a child’s sense of compassion and love is an admirable thing to do that will in turn benefit all of God’s Creation: humans, animals and the environment.
