5. I don't understand the objection to the baby boxes. Like another DU member said above, I see these

baby boxes as being like our save haven law. Is there some notion that a woman who is choosing to leave her baby behind is unaware of a safety net that will help her to raise her own child?
I would think that any person who is in such a desperate situation that they choose to leave their baby in that fashion is making the right decision for the place they are in their life.
It is good to keep the baby safe.
I don't understand how these baby boxes are anything but good.
so often we have news of babies being left to die in garbage cans --these boxes can give a person in a horrible situation a safe route to get their baby to safety.
