Can the mother place the baby anonymously? / Safe Baby (Abandoned Baby or Safe Haven) Law

Yes. This law was passed in 2001, to hopefully save the lives of abandoned newborn babies. It allows mothers to anonymously drop off their newborn baby without fear of criminal prosecution IF (1) the baby is unharmed, (2) is no more than 72 hours old, and (3) is brought to a designated drop off site. Certain places (hospitals, clinics, fire stations, churches, adoption agencies) are allowed to be drop off sites and they must identify themselves with a sign. An adoption process will proceed without the birth parents involvement.
