Re: Safe haven laws

I hope (as I'd assume most parents would) that my boys will grow to be good people. I would hope that I can raise them to make smart decisions and know that for every action, there is a reaction...or, for every act - there is a consequence. In an appropriate way, I will tell them about the safe haven laws. I want to explain it in such a way...that they don't think, hey...i can keep the baby and deal with it...or i can drop it off at the hospital with no consequence. I want them to see it as a last resort...if it's necessary to keep the baby healthy, then by all means (as opposed to dropping it in a dumpster, etc). i hope my point came across right...I'm having some trouble with words today.
