I'm not convinced Australians are outraged regarding DV. The stats have been bad for as long as I can recall. We know the stats, yet the stats just continue to get worse every decade. To me, that's not evidence in favour of Australian's being 'appalled'.

If thats the case then the publics reaction to this shouldnt be called out upon and put on the same level as this hideous woman. That offended me. Just because I believe something is wrong doesnt put me on the same level as a baby-killer.

I wonder what the father is thinking, and if he knows he actually has a child.
If he does, and he wasn't part of the plan to dispose of this child, I hope that he is in a position to look after this child and love it more than anything in the world.
I have no sympathy for this woman.

When the news broke, the media and police did not know who the child was and who he belonged to. Much like using the media to ask for information on a kidnapped child I suspect.
I'm a bit shocked you say child abuse doesn't need social change yet say that no one cares about DV. The argument is inconsistent and lacks substance and really is a Strawman. Other opinions are just as valid as yours.

If this this story incites enough outrage for them to get these 'baby hatches' where women can give up their babies free from persecution and ONE baby ends up there instead of in a drain then I believe that yes, this is important.
How many babies need to be dumped before you think the public has a right to care?
