The state has taken 800 children from their parents in the first five months of 2012, reports Eyewitness news.
When the government forces parents to send children to school, and child labour laws restrict kids from working, it becomes more costly for parents to have children.
Could this be why Cape Town Child Welfare’s Niresh Ramklaas says that the level of abandonment, abuse and neglect continues to increase, and why “the province has high levels of child dumping.” EWN also reports that recently, a newborn baby was dumped in a pit toilet in George, and that police are still searching for the baby’s parents.
