The Bayakhanya Foundation NPC started this petition to president of south Africa and

To properly protect children’s tomorrows, we must ensure their right to life - today.
 
In South Africa, two out of three babies who are unsafely abandoned die.
 
Abandonment is an incredibly complex issue. There can be no excuse for intentionally harming or wilfully neglecting any child - but we must realise that there are birth parents in crisis who would rather choose life.
 
However, our law is currently silent on options for safely relinquishing babies. Dr Whitney Rosenberg’s thesis shows how important it is that we proactively legislate for baby savers. This could be part of the Children’s Amendment Bill. By empowering birth parents to choose safe relinquishment instead of unsafe abandonment, and removing criminal sanctions where correct procedures are followed, WE CAN SAVE CHILDREN’S LIVES!
 
The Bayakhanya Foundation NPC believes that every child has a place to star and is proud to be collaborating with Dr Rosenberg in transforming children’s tomorrows, starting with the smallest and most vulnerable.
 
Please sign this petition to support our proposal that baby savers should be legalised – together we can decrease unsafe abandonment and reduce the number of babies who needlessly die. We can also reduce trauma for those who are handed into care, rather than being left to face the odds alone.
