Indiana installs first ‘safe haven’ boxes to save abandoned newborns

With newborns increasingly abandoned, sometimes literally thrown in trash bins or flushed down toilets, one Indiana pro-life organization is installing "baby boxes" for mothers who feel they cannot care for their baby to ensure the child's safety.

When a mother opens the box – which is climate-controlled, padded, and circulates fresh air inside – a call is made to 911.  The box automatically locks once the mother shuts its door.  Motion sensors trigger a second, backup call to 911. Within three to five minutes, paramedics arrive and take the baby to the hospital for care. Indiana's Child Protective Services then takes custody of the child.
