07.29.15 - Safe Haven Law Has Potential To Save Ohio Newborns

 

"Ohio is one of many states with Safe Haven laws on the books. Many Ohioans are unfamiliar with this law, but its practicality has the potential to save babies’ lives who are otherwise in danger of abandonment by birth mothers and fathers who find themselves in difficult circumstances and are unable to take on the challenges of parenthood. Instead of penalizing birth parents who can’t care for an infant, the Safe Haven law gives them an incentive to protect their child by placing him or her in good hands."
