    1. Attention getter

  • Are you proud to be a Malaysian? Well, I’m proud to be a Malaysian but what happened recently make me thinking? Our country, Malaysia has become a very popular and favourite spot for dumping, not the usual garbage dumping but it is – the baby dumping. Baby dumping means the act of throwing away the babies at any place without taken care the babies. Based on Bukit Aman Police Headquarters statistics, it was found a total of 580 babies were found dumped between years 2000-2006. 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 five months, almost every day there are reports on dumped baby cases. Year 2010 also known as Year of Baby Dumping cases and this has brought a lots of question and issues. Surely, all of us have heard about fruit season and others, but do you ever heard of baby dumping season? New Year celebration and Valentine’s Day are known as mating season nowadays which leads to unwanted pregnancies among youth and obviously, leads to baby dumping cases which can be easily read in the mass media.

    1. Reason to listen

    1. Credibility statement

  • The baby dumping case has touched my heart upon seeing the pictures of the baby being dumped in a very unethical and inhuman way.

  • I have read and studied about baby dumping in Malaysia, and have done research on the Internet.
    1. Preview of main point

  • First I will discuss about the cause of baby dumping

  • Second, I will discuss about the effect of baby dumping

  • And lastly, I will discuss about the possible prevention of baby dumping cases
  1. There are several causes that may lead to baby dumping cases that have been identified from various studies

    1. Extreme celebration of certain events

  • The occasions were celebrated in a very extreme manner and indirectly encourage to free sex which resulted in baby dumping cases.

  • Those extreme celebration is originated from the west which ‘’did not sit well’’ with our culture in Malaysia.
    1. Sexual abuse

  • They are usually dumping their babies due to the feeling of being betrayed by the baby’s father and also the feeling of being used.

  • If the woman is being sexually abuse, they are tending to disposed before or after the child’s birth.
    1. Loosening of social problem

  • Due to high phase of modernisation and development, social control system has become loosening up.

  • Neighbourliness, which should become an agent of social control system to curtail the social ills has become waning.

  • Schools are also not being sensitive to the students as they are engrossed to the academic and examination result.

  • Parents did not well-supervise their child as they tend to believe that their children are good and due to time constraints as many parents are working.

  • Lack of sex education and pornography also leads to the baby dumping cases.

Transition: Now that I’ve discussed the causes of baby dumping, I will now discuss the effect of baby dumping case.
  1. Baby dumping will directly affect three parties that are the mothers, baby and the society itself

    1. Effect to the mother

  • The mother’s may have the risk of death due to the bleeding during the child’s birth.

  • They will be expelled from schools or educational institutions

  • Will be charged for attempting murder if the baby were still alive and charge for murder penalty if the baby is dead.

  • Feeling pressure from family, friends and the surrounding and most importantly is the feeling of guilty.
    1. Effect to the baby

  • The baby unable to grow up in a proper way, feel unloved and alone.

  • They also may have the possibilities of having birth defect and low body immunity.
    1. Effect to the society

  • It will bring bad image to the society

Transition: now that we had known the cause of baby dumping, let’s move on to the next main point that is the prevention of baby dumping cases.
  1. Responsibilities of preventing baby dumping cases lies on the shoulder of everyone

    1. Individual

  • By being close to the religion, it can prevent the youth from get stuck on social ills such as free sex that leads to baby dumping.

  • Take a maximum care and control yourself.
    1. Parents, society and schools

  • Parents and the schools need to play important roles to teach their child to become good in behaviour.

  • They need to educate their child, not frightening them so that if they are having problems and difficulties, they are not hiding it from the parents.

  • Teaching them to stay out from sexual relationships


  1. Review of main points

  • Today I have discussed about:

  1. The cause of baby dumping

  2. The effect of baby dumping

  3. The possible solution for baby dumping cases

  1. Restate thesis

  • Baby dumping especially among youth is a serious social crisis and has a chronic increase in Malaysia.

    1. Closure

  • As the conclusion, baby dumping cases will not end without any solution or intervention from all as we do not want any more babies to die.

  • It is true that baby dumping case is the prevention of baby dumping lies in the shoulder of the parents, school and society to tackle it, however, it stills boil down to individual responsibility. The youths need to take full control and take a maximum care towards their self.

  • Everyone has the chance to change their self. As quoted by Zig Ziglar;

‘’If you don't like who you are and where you are, don't worry about it because you're not stuck either with who you are or where you are. You can grow. You can change .You can be more than you are.’’
