A FAMILY Support Centre (FSC) advocator says the tragedy relating to killing of innocent babies is an issue that must be addressed in our homes.
Hendricks Barai was responding to recent discoveries of dead babies in Honiara.
Mr Barai said this is a huge problem that the community tends to ignore.
“It’s not a government problem, but one that starts right from the home,” he said.
“We need to educate our youths about sexual reproductive health and teach them about life, so that unwanted pregnancy could be avoided,” he added.
He also said girls who abort their child lacked the proper moral teaching from their parents or guardians and some are coming from broken homes, hence they engaged in aimless activities like drinking, smoking drug and having unsafe sex that resulted in unwanted pregnancy.
Mr Barai said families, communities and churches must work together to address the problem by educating our young people.
He said most young people did not have the chance in life to openly discuss reproductive health.
