Babies Given Away on TV Show

Pakistani Talk Show Is Giving Away Babies

In what sounds like an unorthodox adoption program, a popular Pakistani television host has been giving away babies live on air in an effort to boost his show's ratings. According to Reuters, Aamir Liaquat Hussain usually gives away prizes like motorbikes, mobile phones, and land deeds to audience members who correctly answer questions about Islam. But at the beginning of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan, he kicked things up a notch and presented two families with babies.

"If we didn't find this baby, a cat or a dog would have eaten it," Hussain explained. The abandoned babies were rescued by Chhipa Welfare Association, a Pakistani aid organization that scours garbage dumps and other sites for discarded newborns. The association also says it properly vets families through normal adoption procedures before Hussain awards them a baby.

Do you agree with this method of finding a baby a home?

This is a fine way to show how precious babies are. Maybe someone will be moved to keep her child rather than abandon it, after seeing this. And how wonderful for childless couples and baby alike to be united. This is a creative way to do a good thing.

Sure especially if it's parents abandoned them at least they have a home and don't die out in the alley way somewhere.

Yeah well , it is very common abandonment of babies and children, and IF they where in deed truly abandoned and not, spirited traffic babies taken from poor families, then guess they baby wins by getting a family who one would hope love and adore the baby until adulthood and beyond. End story Better to be in a loving family that a garbage heap.

Sad that babies are given away like prizes BUT if it means the child will have a home and loving parents and isnt aborted or left to die,,,then go for it!
