    women should be able to go to the hospital and give up their kids. The kids will be in a safe place and they have a future.

    Yes, it sounds like they need to change the "abandonment laws" to allow women to give birth in a hospital and then leave. Or to drop an infant off with police, firefighters, or hospital staff anytime.

    Of course it would be BEST if only those capable and willing to care for the infants would have them, but that just isn't the case in reality. It's better to provide viable options than to not, and to hope to reduce infanticide with the viable options, IMO.

    " At a meeting last month, the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child said baby boxes should be banned and is pushing that agenda to the European Parliament. "

    The UN and the European Parliament should get out of our faces and stop trying to their unrealistic laws on souvereign countries.
