""The safe haven laws are wrong, you should at least get your medical history," she said."
How the heck does she expect a girl who didn't want to tell anyone that she was pregnant and was afraid of going somewhere she might be identified to fill out a form with her family's medical history? The important thing is to save the lives of the babies, and any medical history that can be gleaned from willing mothers is gravy.

Exactly. I'm 50 years old and I come from the era of closed adoptions. I've left large amounts of medical forms blank all my life, because I simply don't have the information. It's not a big deal.
How many of these really immature young women even know their own medical history, their family's medical history, OR the medical history of the FATHER of the baby? There is more than one piece to the puzzle.
