A SOBERING REMINDER!

THE SAFE BABY SITE DROP OFF POINT!

I was covering an issue in the Sunnyside area Thursday when I saw a very sobering sign. The posting reads – Safe Baby Site. It was posted on fire station #55 on Cullen. I’m sure many of you remember the state law that allows parents to leave children up to 60 days old and unharmed at area hospitals and fire stations where the sign is displayed. These are babies the parents don’t want or can’t take care. The signs are a reminder there is no need to throw a child into a dumpster or to abandon a baby in the park. I wanted to ask the captain on duty how many if any children have been dropped off at the station. Unfortunately, I got so busy I failed to ask. Do you think these drop off sites for babies are a good idea or an easy way out for some parents who refuse to keep their children? The Insite would love to hear your opinion?
