Sign up Baby box ban: Why the UN wants to ban the practice Baby box ban:
The committee, a group of 18 international human rights experts based in Geneva, says that while "foundling wheels" and baby hatches had disappeared from Europe in the last century, almost have been installed across the continent in the past decade in nations as diverse as Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Czech Republic and Latvia.
Sincemore than children have been abandoned in the hatches, with faith groups and right-wing politicians spearheading the revival in the controversial practice.

In February the German Youth Institute found that the anonymous service had lost trace of a fifth of all abandoned babies — giving ammunition to those who want to end the practice.
I know also the problems, but for me it is essential to protect and to safeguard the life of children in extreme situations. All other problems can be solved with good will as long as the child is alive.
