Dear BBC News ....

If someone deliberately starved to death has been 'allowed to die', as in your news bulletins and this report among others, could you extend this phrase to cover parents who deliberately deprive their babies of food and water, or the victims of famine ?

After all, 'starving to death' is currently the preferred phrase when you're speaking of baby seals or human infants.
