There were cases of newborns abandoned in the streets or at rubbish dumps. Imagine a body of a baby boy who was left on the roadside was found by passers-by, with his left hand bitten off by wild dogs...
What happen to parents nowadays?
How could the parents just dump their babies without even have chance to see the world better. If you are not ready yet to be a responsible parent, stop the "reproduction process". There is always this thing call condom and it is even cheaper than the cigarettes. Don't be a selfish guy just to have short moment of "happiness".
I am sure some of you have watched the baby abortion video before. So do I. Sometimes a person can promise to take care of you forever, or even get engaged together to promise you it is safe to be with him. But some people just betray the trust given and dump the lady along with the children. I would say this somehow will leads to child abuse.
Here is a video that I saw through Twitter sharing:

Recognising abuse: Signs and symptoms
The first step to helping abused children is learning about the signs and symptoms of: (i) physical abuse, (ii) emotional abuse, (iii) sexual abuse, (iv) neglect.
When looking out for signs of child abuse, don’t just think bruises and broken bones. There may also be behavioural or emotional signs, or a combination of several signs. For example, unexplained injuries accompanied by a change in the child’s behaviour could be a sign that something is wrong.
Having one or two bruises does not necessarily mean that the child is being abused. But when signs appear repeatedly or in combination with other symptoms, we should be concerned.
Learning more about the signs and symptoms of abuse, and knowing how to seek advice or assistance, is the best way you can help.
United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) ‘Get On Board’ campaign
What is UNICEF 'Get On Board' Campaign?
The adage that ignorance is bliss could not be farther from the truth, particularly in the context of child abuse. Knowledge is the key to our success. It gives us the power to govern ourselves, our households, and ultimately our communities.
Get on Board is a "peoples' campaign" by UNICEF to provide the Malaysian public with the knowledge, insights and resources to stop child abuse. The digitally-driven campaign, a first by UNICEF in the region, aims to unite 100,000 supporters to raise their hand in support of children. We hope the Malaysian public will embrace this campaign as their own, and support and promote it in their own unique ways to ensure a safe and protected childhood for every child in Malaysia.Do the right thing. Get on board. Stop child abuse!
