The end of Baby Boxes
All over the world, children are abandoned within hours of being born. Some, sadly, are left to die. Other foundlings though, are left in what are known as baby boxes: safe, secure places, usually at hospitals or clinics, where a desperate mother can drop off her child anonymously and know he or she will be cared for. But now, there are calls for an end to baby boxes and claims that they do more harm than good to those most vulnerable among us.
