CHILD is a priceless gift from Allah SWT. However, baby dumping is a social crisis and has a chronic increase as many cases are occurring in Malaysian society. The baby dumping refers to discarding or leaving alone, for an extended period of time, a child younger than 12 months of age in a public or private setting with the intent to dispose of the child. Based on Bukit Aman Police Headquarters statistics found a total of 580 babies were found dumped between year 2000 to 2006. This number of cases increase every year where as much as 65 baby dumping cases has increased to 83 cases in the year 2006. In the first 5 months, almost everyday there are reports on dumped baby cases.You read it on the front page of the newspaper or see it on the nightly news...a newborn baby found in a back alley. This scenario had been more serious from day to day although there are a lot about this in the mass media.

Mostly,among teenagers always seen to be involved in this situation. Teenage parents give birth in a motel room and leave the child for dead in a dumpster. A girl gives birth in a school bathroom at night. throws the baby into the garbage or in the toilet.These stories relate to one of the most frightening realities of our culture today: some children are viewed as problems to be thrown away rather than gifts to be treasured. More recently, the tragedy of Baby
Dumping has begun to be addressed by state legislatures throughout the nation. For example, a number of states have passed laws to provide funding, care, and services for dumped children. These legislative actions have also established 'safe houses' - public centers such as fire stations, police stations, and other public areas where women can bring unwanted children rather then leave them in trash receptacles. The hope is that, by offering an alternative to dumping, women might leave their children with people who can help the baby. Surprisingly, these cases have got a lot of attention from the community. So, what are the best opinions and ways that should be taken to prevent this scenario from spreading?


  1. Muhammad Shamsul Abd Ghani (A122860) Said....when met by reporters at a function here, not only the women involved in baby dumping would be brought to justice, the men would not be let off the hook either. I t is because men also involved in this case....

  2. muhammad shamsul (A122860).. dumping is inhuman and unacceptable. i'm advised women thinking of dumping their babies to take them to orphanages and other organizations such as the "Saudatul Sakinah" where such children would be looked after.

  3. mohd izzat azren(A131055)..The babies is not guilty. So, they should not be punished as such..

  4. Muhammad Shamsul bin Abd Ghani (A122860) for me for solve this problem .Parents must play high role to teach their kids to become good in their behavior. Besides that, parents also have to guide and advise their children in whatever they do. It’s true that a good parental foundation can steer someone on the right path and tragically, there are instances of children seeming doomed from the start. They receive such poor guidance from their parents when they are young. Parents should be held accountable for the children they raise. Sometimes, parents don’t give full attention to their children as today many parents are expect their children are good enough. Parents are also too busy with their jobs until they forget to give attention to their children. This is a serious problem among parents as they don’t know what their children are doing.

  5. Winda Ariany (A121598) yes, im agree with what is Shamsul Say. Stop blaming only women for baby dumping, because My heart goes out to all those innocent babies abandoned by their young mothers out of desperation.
    Society is ever so ready to point fingers at the hapless young mother guilty of baby dumping. I do not believe she would have resorted to such a desperate act if her partner was there for her, if her parents forgave her, and if her community showed some sympathy for her and her unborn child.

  6. This nor the woman nor the guys fold. It is the shame that is created, the unpurity. It is unbelievable that people are so scared that they dump their baby. Have you ever though about the reasoning behind it? People fall in Love. But because of the ignorance in regards to sexual education youngsters have to undertake actions like this. Nobody does this out of free will. It is layed upon them. Very very sad. Sometimes religion is not the answer, it is causing the problem!

  7. izzat azren(a131055)
    -shamsul,i not agree with you.some parents who have given attention to their children,but their children remain with their stance that emphasizes the extreme pleasure to commit adultery,and eventually gave birth an illegitimate child.i think the children should control their behavior and take care of their probation.this can be proved to be wise in choosing friends who can guide them to behave well.

  8. Oh. The irony. -__-
    Yes. yes and yes.
    So many factors causing this heinous baby-dumping problem. Blame the men who got their chicks impregnated too. Should we castrate all men to solve this? >:)
    Religion is only something to prevent copulation before marriage and instill moral values into a person. Yet again, religion does not completely solve everything.Even those without religion can refrain from getting pregnant out of wedlock.
    Parents do act as a catalyst in this situation, but sometimes even if they are given good parental guidance, they can still have sex all around and get pregnant.
    I believe it is more of the person him/herself.
    How easy is it for us to give into temptations and refuse to think rationally? Giving stupid excuses like 'i had no choice' or whatever crap they can come up with.
    Girls obviously feel embarrassed because of how society actually frown upon the situation. Yes, we would love to help yet we can't help thinking as to why she would be so careless as to get pregnant?
    Teens now never think of the consequences, huh?
    I'm a teen myself and can think further ahead.
    Not necessarily all teen mothers are guilty. When some got pregnant because of rape, the others might have done it on their own free will, let those sob and suffer but baby-dumping is obviously not a solution.
    Parents should be more cooperative and encouraging, disowning their kids is a stupid thing to do. Teen girls should know that society is on their side. But? Would knowing that have them sleep around and have babies?
    Ughh. This is mind-boggling. I'm getting mixed feelings about my own points yet I still believe it's up to the teenagers themselves to stop this baby-dumping situation.
    Or all of them should just go to hell.
    I am such a sadist. ^_^ kyahaha

  14. It is sad to hear from some of my students, at the same time it is complex problem to fix up. It requires a workshop to be conducted entitled:
    "Our Tennagers:
    Where are they Heading" Is there a way out".

    Do you think there is a demand for such timely workshop. If so I want to hear from you to put me with right institution.
    Thank you & Wasslam
