    Was sitting here thinking...can't come up with a worse crime than a parent harming their kids like that.

    That's all.

    A husband intentionally starving his wife to enable him to marry his long-time mistress?

    At least the parent killing said child doesn't subject them to life-long torture they can't escape.

    I would think beating and raping them over a period of many years would be worse.

    a.) the child is more likely to kill themselves, intentionally, or unintentionally through the abuse of drugs or other dangerous behavior
    b.) the child is more likely to grow up and beat and/or rape their own children

    Either of those sound worse than just outright killing your child, or at the very least equal.
