6. If the rights of parents supercede those of children
then I guess parents also don't have the legal responsibility to provide children with food. Moral and ethical maybe, but not legal. I guess if they really wanted to, they could prostitute out a young daughter as well. It's their right as parents.

This isn't really comparable to the Terry Schiavo case, as she was deemed to be medically hopeless, while this kid obviously was not. But hey, he's a kid, so I guess that's not important. He's property until he turns 18.
