New York is very clear when it comes to unwanted babies. It says that a baby can be left anyplace a responsible adult can find it. That could mean at a home, in a supermarket or at a police station, as long as the baby is warm, dry and protected from the elements, Kelly said. Hospitals are also safe havens

I don't even know where to begin...

I may be in the minority here, but I am strongly in favor of “Safe Haven” laws. It at least gives the baby a chance to be placed in a good, loving home, rather than left outside in a dumpster for dead.

I do. Why do they permit a newborn baby to be abandoned anyplace "as long as the baby is warm, dry and protected from the elements" when it is illegal in New York (considered child abuse) to leave a child unattended even where adults are present?
