Ruined our good name???

More like exposed that all is not culturally well in this modern age.
  • numerous cases of newborn babies being abandoned at birth
  • common theme amongst the cases are the disregard for whether the baby lived or not
  • newborns in plastic bags
  • In most of the cases the babies end up dying before they were found
  • blame and berating the woman for her 'stupidity' and 'ignorance
  • trying to defend the pride of their families
  • CEO of the Ministry of Health has already reaffirmed that travelling at seven months term is not a good idea
  • trying to figure out where the woman comes from, her family and any other gossip worthy details
  • Those who processed the woman's papers are pointing fingers
  • people outraged at the incident, because it gives Samoa a bad name
  • "How embarrassing!!! How could she? What was she thinking? She thought she would get away with it?"
Come back and complain when you move from the Stone Age to the 21st century.

It's just an example of an inch becoming a mile.

It would have been legal for her to arrange for the same baby to be tossed in the bin in a plastic bag a short time earlier.
