4. Keep The Baby Boxes!

Banning the baby-boxes is a bad idea and I don't give a rat's hindquarters if anyone disagrees with me.

There ought to be a place where a desperate, emotionally-distraught young (or not-so-young) woman can drop off an unwanted new-born if she realizes that she can't care for it or if she faces emotionally or physically abuses relatives who would make her or the newborn targets for yet more abuse (The newborn can be DNA tested in case the mother wants to reclaim it later). In light of the barbarous "honor-killing" mind-set that affects some ethnic groups resident in Europe these days, I fail to see how some clueless, rose-tinted glasses-wearing, pink-cloud dwelling liberal ideologues are failing to face some of the uglier parts of human behavior.

I think I've earned my right to share my opinion. Yeah, I'm male. I've also been involved in the reproductive rights struggle for over 30 years now, and regardless of how I feel about access to abortion and post-natal childcare (For and for, by the way), I also realize that there are still a lot of people possessing and acting on archaic attitudes.
