Baby Moses Law: A "Safe Haven" for Newborn Babies

A Safe Haven for Newborn Babies

Ohio's Safe Haven For Newborns Law was passed in April 2001. Under this law, a parent, without fear of prosecution, may deliver her unharmed newborn, not more than 3 days old, to a medical worker at a hospital or other emergency service organization. As of 1/07, 43 babies have been safely surrendered in OH. Another name for this legislation is a "Baby Moses Law".
