Lately, Malaysia is facing a serious issue regarding on baby dumping which getting more chronic and cause a lot of attention. This social problem appears every day in newspaper and mass media. This was shocked to us because it opposed to our culture. Why this thing happens?
What is actually the issue of baby dumping? It is not only just dumping new-born babies but also refers to discarding or leaving alone a baby for an extended period of time at the public place or private setting with the intent to dispose of the child. This issues become worst when a girl gives birth in a school bathroom at night then throws the baby into the garbage or in the toilet, a baby swaddled in newspapers left squalling by a fly-infested dustbin, a baby abandoned under the harsh sun beating down on a wet rice field, a baby left on the doorsteps of people's home with notes or in a mosque. It is so embarrassing, sad and worst scenario that happened in our society in reality.
Pornographic materials are the biggest factors that can contribute to the baby dumping issues because it will influence teenagers to do bad things. As we know, teenagers like to imitate what they always see and they do without thinking what will happen in the future. They just want to have fun only. Pornographic materials easily to get in Malaysia especially who have the internet connection in their home. Parents need spend their time with children, so they can know the activities their children.do
Actually if we can see, baby dumping is not the solution to a life problem because it can charge that person under Malaysian Law which carries maximum seven years jail. When that happens, they will regrets but nothings they can do to undo.
