  • (attn Marley) Article on Success with Safe Havens in Idaho

    Marley,

    Our local paper had an article today entitled "Safe Haven Act proving
    successful" byline to Corey Taule, Post Register. Two key quotes:



    "Since the act became law on July 1, the Department of Health and
    Welfare said, five babies have been dropped off at safe havens in
    Idaho".

    and

    "The law, however, hasn't completely solved the problem. Health and
    Welfare spokesman Tom Shanahan said this week that two babies in Idaho
    have been abandoned in dumpsters since passage of the Safe Haven Act."



    Are you interested in the full article for your files? I can scan it
    tomorrow and send it to you via e-mail. Alternatively, you could
    write to the editor of "The West" section of the paper and perhaps she
    will send you an electronic copy. Her name is Margaret Wimborne and
    her e-mail addy is: [email protected]

    The PR is available on-line by subscription only. I have the "dead
    tree" version delivered to my door every morning.

          H&W puts reminder out on Safe Haven Act
          ---------------------------------------------------------------
          IDAHO FALLS — If it saved just one baby, Idaho´s Safe Haven Act would be a
          success, the sponsors said two years ago when they made it legal for
          birthparents to abandon their newborn children at designated areas.
          Since July 1, 2001, five babies have been left at safe havens in Idaho. But two
          more have been found abandoned and dead in trash bins since the act became law,
          and advocates say more advertisement of the law is needed.

          Health and Welfare spokesman Tom Shanahan said though fliers and posters have
          been distributed at health district offices, hospitals, schools and by juvenile
          detention officers, some young mothers still are not getting the message.

          “A lot of it is getting the word out,” Shanahan said. “If we get the word
          out, the program is pretty well set up.”

          The law´s author, Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis, said he also sees the
          need for more outreach. A struggling economy has left state agencies pinching
          pennies, but the Department of Health and Welfare needs money in its budget to
          advertise the law, Davis said. “Certainly we need to continue to apprise
          people of this opportunity,” he said.

          Still, the senator said he rejoices in the law´s result. All five abandoned
          babies have either been adopted or are going through the adoption process.

          “I am frankly extremely excited about the positive impact this legislation
          has had,” Davis said.

          He recently had a chance to see the law in action, when he met with an eastern
          Idaho couple who adopted one of the babies.

          “It was a tingling moment,” he said.

          The law grants birthparents immunity from prosecution if they abandon babies at
          places considered safe havens within 30 days of birth. Almost any medical
          facility qualifies as a safe haven under the law, and children can also be left
          with emergency medical responders.

          Because the birthparents are guaranteed anonymity under the law, the Department
          of Health and Welfare will not disclose in which cities the babies were
          abandoned.

            No, the Statesman is a different paper. Both articles appear to quote
            the same news release but the Post Register version is larger. Would
            you like me to e-mail you the scanned PR article?

            Regards,

            Rick

                  Hi J!

                  Yes, things are going well for us. Thanks for asking! My son
                  graduated from high school this last spring and has moved out into an
                  apartment. He decided to work for a year before starting college.
                  We've had the opportunity to experience an empty nest. Pluses and
                  minuses as you can imagine. On Thanksgiving, he announced that he
                  would like to move back home so that he can save more money for
                  college... Smart man!

                  As far as usenet, well I decided to develop other uses for my time and
                  stopped reading for several months. Now that winter is approaching, I
                  think I'll get back to reading usenet and participating as time
                  allows.

                  Best to you and yours,

                  Rick
