The Home Minister Saifuddin Nasution Ismail announced the government would not proceed with two of five proposed constitutional amendments that would affect the citizenship of foundlings and abandoned babies, following a massive public outcry.

BFM speaks to Suri Kempe of Family Frontiers about the negative implications of the regressive amendments.
