Legal Abandonment of Newborns: North Carolina’s Safe Surrender Law

Legal Abandonment of Newborns: North Carolina’s Safe Surrender Law

“In North Carolina, a parent may surrender the infant to “any adult.”Most other states’ laws require that the sur- render be made at a specified safe haven or to a specified professional who works at such a place.” ( from the posted link)

As I read about the dead baby found in Franklin County this morning, I thought this might be appropriate to remind everyone of North Carolina’s Safe Surrender Law. We don’t yet know if that baby was born alive or was stillborn….the mother and her family need our prayers desperately. Please know that God loves all of us and is willing to forgive whatever we’ve done…..all we have to do is ask Him into our lives.
