Merger[edit]

I definitely agree that a merger should take place, but I unfortunately do not know how to do that. I hope someone will stop in and consider helping out by making the change. CallidoraBlack (talk) 21:11, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

I agree, the content of "Secret Safe Place For Newborns" should be a subsection of this page. EmanWilm (talk) 01:56, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Some states (like Texas, who first made this law) refer to this as the Baby Moses law. Is there anyway we can have it redirected to here? 70.132.144.198 (talk) 05:23, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

I have created a redirect for Baby Moses law. --Mysdaao talk 20:58, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Has there ever been a documented case of a father dropping off a baby at a safe haven?[edit]

If fathers are regularly dropping off babies at safe havens, the article should cite that. If fathers are not regularly dropping off babies at safe havens, the word mother should be used throughout the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.177.158.58 (talk) 22:55, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

The glaringly unnecessary use of gender-specific terms has been corrected. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 138.39.7.6 (talk) 11:45, 18 October 2013 (UTC)

Hi, The Baby Moses Law was actually created by Ms. Johanna Holland in 1999 from Houston, Texas. The law begin when local news reported infants being left alone, in restroom stalls, thrown in apartment trash cans, and on roadside on a weekly basis for months. Ms.Holland began to reach out to city officials requesting for help in saving children lives but so many city officials in Houston told her they could not help. Please note; Ms.Holland never had anyone in her family or friends to abandon any child , she just felt that she need to do something to help save these precious children, and so she did, Help began when she contacted Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee office in Houston, and spoke to a male employee, she asked not to be recognized for her humanitarian efforts, because she felt it would be selfish and it was not about her but about the life of a child, Ms.Holland asked the worker that if Ms.Lee could go on local news and ask viewers to drop off the unwanted babies at either a fire station or emergency room to get checked out by a health care worker and after that the health care doctor, could contact Foster care to pick up the children and get them adopted by parents whom will love them,if the adults would do this no one would be arrested,this is or never have been about sparing the adult it is about saving a child life, and if it took convincing an adult by telling them this,it worked.. The following day Congresswoman Ms Lee held a news conference on local news stations and delivered Ms.Holland message, Ms. Lee then reached out to Victoria Texas Representative on Ms. Johanna Holland behalf and got her request passed as a state law in Texas and signed by Governor George W. Bush II. The Baby Moses name derived from Ms.Holland asking when a infant is delivered to the fire station or ER.. can the adults place the infants in a medium size basket with a blanket under the infant for comfort, like Moses in the Bible mother had done for him, This law is for children of all ages no age limit, Saving a child life has always been the reason, and this is the greatest award given to Ms. Johanna R. Holland resident of Houston Texas,nor has she received a Proclamation from the State of Texas-

THIS INFORMATION  IS TRUE AND  CAN BE VALIDATED BY  VICTORIA, TEXAS STATE REPRESENTATIVE
