I HAVE been working on the issue of child abuse and baby dumping over the past 20 years.
Politicians tend to give politically right answers and propose changes that will never happen.
Yesterday, Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Shahrizat announced in Parliament that between 2005 and 2009, a total of 10,500 cases of child abuse was reported. What people don’t know is that less than 1% of the cases came to court.
She said there were 495 cases of baby dumping during this period but what the public don’t know is that abortions can reach up to 300 cases a day.
These are real issues related to baby dumping that the public are not aware.
