Dump the Baby

REMBAU: The body of a baby boy, with bruises on his head, eyes, cheeks and back, was found at a bus stop at Batu 8, Jalan Pedas-Linggi, near here.

Rembau OCPD Deputy Supt Mizan Md Dom said passers-by found the body on the bus stop seat at about 6am yesterday and called the police.

"The baby, believed to be about 10 to 12 months old and fully clothed, was wrapped in a batik sarong and towel. There was an inoculation mark on the baby’s left arm,” said Supt Mizan. He said the body had been sent to Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital in Seremban for a post-mortem.

Mizan urged those with information on the baby to contact the Rembau police station at 06-685-2222 or 06-685-1999 or the nearest police station. – Bernama

A question that needs to be answered: Has baby-dumping becoming a new trend nowadays?

Days after days we hear about the inhuman act of dumping/killing baby almost everywhere in Malaysia. The most cruel form of baby-dumping was the almost-rotten dead baby found in the pile of rubbish at a dump site. And the mild one was the one placed at the doorstep of a house owned by the averagely-rich married couple.

Last year 79 baby-dumping cases were reported. But this year, within the first eight months, 65 cases had been reported. WOW! Should we be proud of this statistic?

An advice for the baby-dumpers out there, please don.t kill an innocent child of your own blood. It is totally unforgivable. 

If you can.t afford to take care of the baby, it.s okay to dump him. But please do it nicely, in a humanly way. Either you drop the baby at our country.s first Baby Hatch aka Adoption Center which started its operation barely three months ago, or just drop him at the doorstep of any house near you. 

But please. Don.t kill that baby. Please give him a chance to live his own life. He doesn.t  even need to know that he was once unwanted and been dumped by his very own biological mother.
