Recently, in Australia, two children have been found dead. One, a two-year old boy, was found in a suitcase discovered floating in a duckpond. The other, a seven-year old girl, was found starved to death. She weighed only nine kilos! The Department of Community Services was aware of serious problems with the families of both children. They failed to protect them!
Cases like these occur the world over. Surely it must be accepted that not every adult, male or female, is capable of carrying the responsibility of being a parent.
In fact, some people should never be allowed to have children. They should be sterilized before they can inflict needless suffering upon innocent kids.
Being a parent should be a privilege not a right. It is a privilege that should have to be earned then monitored!
According to the news today, a three-year old girl was taken to hospital last night. She had been bashed in her home and had severe facial injures. Her parents are being interviewed by police.
How much longer will our society allow such criminal brutality and/or neglect involving children to continue? Answer: because of conscienceless apathy, probably forever!
