Safe Haven of Pennsylvania, also known as the Newborn Protection Act, was enacted in 2003 and amended in 2014, and it states that any parent may leave a newborn baby in the care of a hospital or with a police officer at a police station without being criminally liable as long as the baby is no older than 28 days and is not harmed.
Girls who are pregnant, desperate or hiding their pregnancies need to know that their baby can be kept healthy and safe without anyone knowing they gave birth and without any criminal repercussions. Since 2003, 25 babies have been relinquished under Safe Haven.
Girls who have unwanted or unexpected pregnancies may feel that they are in crisis and have to do something desperate. Some may panic and young women need to know that they have safe options. (read more…)
