So I am writing a report for one of my classes. It is about the Safe Haven law. Anyway I don't understand why anyone leaves a baby in a dumpster, on the side of the street or whatever else instead of turning the baby over. One baby was found less than two blocks from a fire station. Had that girl taken the extra few minutes to take the baby there the baby would still be alive and she would not be in jail.

Seriously I just don't get it. One girl who left her baby was in her 30s. Another took her baby home for a few weeks and then left it in a store. Luckily that baby lived. But why not take the kid to a fire dept, police dept, or hospital.

Because they are afraid of the cameras ? Here there are cameras and they contact the women that drop them.

Many states don't have the safe haven laws and the ones that do, aren't widely known about. We need more safe haven laws and more education about the laws if we want this issue to become almost nonexistent.

Actually all states have a safe haven law.

Not true. And many states have an age cut off.

Is it possible that they didn't know?  A lot who chose to take this action are un(der)educated.

Shame, or lack of education.
