Apparently, parenthood is so overwhelming for some people that they are dumping their kids at Nebraska hospitals. You see, like most states, Nebraska has the Safe Haven Law which allows parents to abandon their unwanted children at a hospital, no questions asked. Unlike other states, however, Nebraska does not have restrictions on the ages of the abandoned children, so although the Safe Haven Law was generally intended as a protection for newborns born to unwed teen mothers who are prone to dumping them in trashcans, Nebraska's law has opened the floodgates to all overwhelmed parents. As you will hear in this report, over half of the kids abandoned at Nebraska hospitals are teens and some of those kids are driven across state lines to be dumped in Nebraska.
Ah, parenthood. The ultimate of life's fulfilment and joy.
