The Safe Infants Act allows parents of newborns less than 72 hours old to drop the child off anonymously without consequences. Police departments, fire departments and hospitals are will all accept anonymous drop-offs. The law protects parents from legal repercussions as long as the child shows no signs of abuse. Parents have 30 days to change their minds before the child is put under permanent state custody. Mon, 20 Feb 2012 14:28:25 +0000 Seth Helton 16982 at http://wkms.org
