The African Christian Democratic
Party said it is shocked at the stats by police that there is a trend that is
emerging which shows that more children are being killed by their mothers.
ACDP MP Cheryllyn Dudley said the
culture and laws in the country regarding celebrating a woman’s right to
discard her unborn child needs to change.
"Once a child is born it creates even
bigger problems and if woman feel they have been given a right by society to do what they please with a child then we should be surprised about if these things are happening,” Dudley added.
She concluded by saying that ACDP
has been calling for the longest time for a change in culture and the
legislation regarding abandonment of children.
