Abandoned

If a woman's pregnancy is unwanted, they should not dump their baby like a piece of dirty tissue. There are so many couples who are childless and would give anything to have a baby. Why can't these women give their child up for adoption instead? Maybe they are too embarrassed or ashamed that their child is conceived out of wedlock?

Even animals don't abandon their offspring.

Here's yet another case which just happened in the southern part of this country in a town called Batu Pahat, reported by local daily The Star:

Businessman gets baby in return for free ride

BATU PAHAT: A good Samaritan who gave a lift to a woman was shocked to find a baby abandoned in his car after dropping her off at the bus terminal.

Batu Pahat OCPD Asst Comm Ibrahim Aris said the businessman in his 30s was driving past a hypermarket on Sunday at about 8.30pm when the woman stopped him and asked for a lift.

“The woman, in her 20s, was not carrying anything except the baby in her arms,” he said, adding that woman got off from the back seat of the car on reaching the terminal.

ACP Ibrahim said the businessman realised something amiss five minutes later when he heard the baby cry on reaching Sri Gading.

He lodged a police report when he could not locate the woman after a search at the bus terminal.

He urged those with information to contact the police hotline at 07-2212-999.
