If you are not familiar with safe-haven laws, you should read this article:

The reporter does a good job of explaining the unintended consequences of a legislative “solution” to a complex societal problem. Adoption reformers have opposed these laws from the beginning, which explains Adoption Beat’s interest. Kudos to the Associated Press for picking it up.

  1. Thanks for your mention of my blog. “Safe havens” purport to “save” children – children who are in no danger, don’t need saving, and don’t need their identities stripped from them. Rather than exacerbating the problem, the media could do these children and their families the service of digging deeper into the question of “safe haven” proponents and their ties to the adoption industry.
