If you don't work and believe in God and do whatever I tell you I have the right not to give you dinner if you came out of my conservative dick hole.

Yes, if it were morally justified to let children starve to death then it would be morally justified for a parent to let their child starve to death. Seem tautological? Welcome to morality, the practice of affirming as valuable the things you already value.

The baby gets its nutrients from the mother's bloodstream, would she not be starving as well?
