Newborn infant left in ‘Safe Haven Baby Box’ at fire department still covered in blood

A controversial drop box for unwanted infants was used Tuesday night in Indiana to deposit a just born baby still covered in blood.

The Coolspring Township Fire Department’s “Safe Haven Baby Box” is equipped with alarms that notify local officials when a baby’s placed inside, and the alarms sounded after an infant was dropped off, according to WGN-TV.

Fire Chief Mick Pawlik’s pager buzzed and he guessed it might be another false alarm.

“So I open it up and that baby just looked me right in the eyes,” Pawlik said. “Now the baby is quiet, calm, checked her out real quick inside of the box.”

The humanitarian motivations behind the boxes speak for themselves, however, part of the process is that no questions are asked.

WGN-TV reported that there are no cameras to see who put the child in and there will be no investigation to find the mother.

Meaning no accountability for abandoning a helpless child.

“I don’t know what this girl went through. I have nothing but good things to say. It’s a win-win scenario,” Pawlik said.

The baby girl, maybe an hour old when dropped off, was named Baby Hope — and lets hope this doesn’t become a trend, though it is a better alternative than abortion.
