Sad we even need to be talking about this
INDIANAPOLIS — A 2-foot-long metal box could become Indiana’s newest weapon in its efforts to save babies from abandonment and death.
Legislation approved by the state House of Representatives would allow hospitals, police and fire stations, churches and select nonprofits to install incubators, or baby boxes, in which parents could surrender their newborns anonymously.
The concept dates to “foundling wheels” used in medieval times. Baby boxes are used in Europe and China under several names.
