There are so many children that are above the age of the current Safe Haven law (7 days old) who are being harmed or killed at the hands of their parents. With an option of taking these children to a safe place, with no penalties, maybe we can save the lives of these children.Whether it be the same Safe Haven facilities or that more could be added. There are way too many children that are dying simply because they are unwanted or in the way.

      I lost a grandson two days before his delivery in an accident. It was horrifying for our whole family. We support any issues dealing with children.

      I'm a mother of a four year old, I couldn't imagine life without him. I will never be able to understand all of the parents being abusive and not taking care of their children. If they aren't going to give their children a safe ennvironment, give them to someone who will. Better yet, take birth control.

      I am a woman who was unable to have children biologically and I love children---they should be in a safe and loving environment!

      Because no child should ever have to fear for their lives, and no child should EVER have to worry that their parent will be the one to take his/her life. The warning signs are not always there within the first 7 days of a child's life. Most of these insane parents do not kill their children until they become toddlers. The Safe Haven law NEEDS to be extended!
