Action Alert: Keep Safe Haven Baby Boxes out of New Hampshire!
On February 7, (Wednesday) the New Hampshire House Health, Human Services, and Elderly Affairs Committee will hold a hearing HB16o7, a bill to legalize the use of Safe Haven Baby Boxes aka newborn safety devices in the state.
On January 16, Mrs. Kelsey/SHBB Inc filed suit in the US District Court, Middle District of Florida, Fort Myers Division against Mr. Silverio, his organization, Amy Bollen, and the South Trail Fire & Rescue District where Ms Bollen is Director of Public Relations.
Even the most cursory observer of the SH movement, especially the box movement, knows that abandonment boxes are marketed to and used by single mothers “in crisis,” who for whatever reason–and often manipulated– believe that they have no other choice than to anona-dump their newborns. Baby boxes are baby-hiding machines. Most often the father is out of the decision-making process, ignored or ignorant of the pregnancy and birth. Their rights, along with the rights of the baby, are tossed in the dumpster, to compose a fairytale ending to a family tragedy.

Just in time for Krampus, Washington State lawmakers Rep Gina Mosbrucker, and Rep Lauren Davis pre-filed HB1888, a bill to amend the state’s safe haven law to include Safe Haven Baby Boxes as an “option” for desperate parents–what they mean is mothers–to dump an inconvenient newborn in a box in the wall at state-approved facilities, with no legal or moral consequences. Bye-Bye Baby Bumble!
According to this report, Znachko made the most astounding claim during the ceremony: I ” believe that it is the number one initiative that we have to battle infant mortality in the state of Indiana and across our country.”
Now, I believe that SHBB Inc founder and CEO Monica Kelsey actually cares about these babies. She may love them. It’s not an act. She sometimes refers to them as “my babies.” She fantasizes occasionally that someday one of these (grateful) kids will grow up and take over the baby box company when she retires. Frankly, I don’t see her ever retiring because it’s much more fun and easier than her former job of firefighter/EMT, and there’s lots of free travel thanks to other people’s dimes.
