Introduce safe haven baby boxes in the UK

Petition Details

There have been very sad situations where infants have been found abandoned and/or deceased around the country. We would like the Government to introduce safe haven baby boxes in the UK.

Additional Information

We would like these baby boxes to be supplied at fire houses, police stations and hospitals around the UK, where a parent can anonymously surrender a baby with a 30 day surrender period after birth without prosecution. We believe that mothers should also be entitled to medical care with no questions asked, if they seek it after surrendering an infant.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
