Here is what I would say to your uncle: This is a helpless creature, much like you will be when you are too old to care for yourself. How will you wish to be treated then? Will you want your cries for food, discomfort and loneliness to be ignored? Don't ever tell me to treat my child in a way that would be considered inhumane if I treated you the same way as an elderly old man.
A nursing home will get shut down by the state if they treat helpless elderly people the way we are expected to treat infants. Are we spoiling the elderly? Why do infants get the shaft in our society? Frankly, they are a hell of a lot cuter than most old people, so I just don't get it.
