Horrific. Diminishes any sort of human right your child is born with. Teaches that taking love away from them keeps them quiet. Well guess what it would work, but because naturally a child would never make noise thinking it's in danger. Abandoning an infant is ridiculous, harming and shameful and the author should be downright ashamed of herself. Apparently she didn't even have children when she wrote this. I wouldn't treat an animal like this let alone my own infant. What has the world come to letting stuff like this be published let alone believeing it and following it.
