    The only solution to this is to improve sex education and have a support scheme for single parents.

    Whats wrong with these people? y'day innocent boy died as coz mother couldnt look after him. Now an infant! Where is this country is moving towards? We should find a solution for these kind of behaviors. Children are our future, we should protect and safe guard them, this is every single Sri Lanka's responsibility, Specially the authorities have to put maximum effort to safe guard our children.

    This type of incidents happening in SL almost daily. Its not a surprise. Its a common social problem which should be discussed separately. But we used to talk these things only in Election Season. Sad.

    With the kind of money we got as Tsunami aid, the poor victims could have been rehabiltated well to avoid this sort of tragic incidents, if only the powers be did not swindle such aid. The funny thing is those who robbed even Tsunami money are still sitting in top positions of the government and watching such tragedies taking place in the country.

    This is realy sad and pethetic. Well whatever it is the rulers might connect this with SF or opposition and the CID might question few opposition condidates.

    Where were the brother(s), sister(s), father, mother, husband, in laws of this poor mother? Were they aware of anything going on with the mother, including depression and other medical conditions. Why blame the government?

    Enact the Act on abortion in Sri Lanka as in Uk so that people could think twice whether to have a baby or not. If the parents can't afford the baby it is better that the baby be unborn than to suffer the rest of the life.

    Sunday, 21 March 2010 01:27 PM
