Nollywood Actress Happy Julian-Uchendu Speaks Out Against Dumping Of Newborn Babies

Nollywood producer and actress, Happy Julian-Uchendu, has expressed concern over the rise in cases of babies being abandoned on the streets and in public places.



The actress who often celebrates events like her birthday, her son’s birthday and Valentine's day with children at Orphanage Homes lamented about the dumping of newborn babies in public places by young and unprepared mothers across the country.


In an interview with Vanguard, the actress said: “I spent my Christmas with the children at the orphanage, and also my birthday celebration is done with them including my son’s birthday ceremony is with them. I cherish and see them as my children too. I also believe in giving to the less privilege with what God has blessed me with, I mean the masses. This has been part of my upbringing and I have cultivated the habit of helping the masses because they need help and love.”


“I am a mother and I know the pain women pass through. After 22 hours of labour then delivery, somebody will now go and dump the baby on the street. I begin to imagine whether is the same labour process I went through these women who dump their newborns go through?"


While noting that some young girls often resort to this act due to societal pressures and fear of their parents, she advised parents to instill good morals and discipline in their children.



“Even though they had the pregnancy without their parents knowing, I appeal to them not to go on with dumping the innocent babies, rather go home and plead with your mum to take care of the child, after which you can go engage yourself with a little job to support the baby.”

Like seriously I also think about it. I can never give up my girl not for anything in the world.

I think the best way to curb this menace is to accept that people will always get pregnant outside wedlock and maybe have a shelter or the government will give this girls a deal where they can take the babies from them and maybe give them some money for the troubles.
What do I kno?

Or.maybe provide contraceptive to teenagers. Birth control is needed. Because there are too many homeless children out there. If birth control can reduce that number then why can't we go for it??

I don't know how someone will have such heart to do it. I went through labor for 7 hours. I can't trade my baby for nothing in this life.

Why throw your child away after so much trouble in carrying the pregnancy and birthing the child? Still baffles me

Our government needs to sensitize its people on sex and birth control. Religion is eating Nigeria up. These girls are kids themselves 12-20. They murder these babies and throw them away. Those who cannot just put them away and hope they get picked up by a Samaritan. I feel sick thinking about this act sometimes.
