Safe Haven Baby Boxes

India is one of several countries that allows women to relinquish unwanted infants safely and anonymously.  It would be ideal if all pregnancies were wanted ones, and if poor women had enough support to keep babies they wanted, and if aboveboard adoption were freely available to those who chose it.  Next, it would be preferable if women handed off their babies in person at a location such as a monastery or hospital.  Failing those, a Safe Haven Baby Box is greatly preferable to abandonment or infanticide, which are serious problems in places like India.  So fix what you can reach.
