    Infant Safe Haven Laws

    From the pro-abortion crowd, I often hear that abortion is the best, or even only, option for women with unwanted pregnancies. Oh, how wrong they are, for there are numerous options besides an abortion. The most obvious alternative to an abortion is to keep and raise the baby, allowing his/her love to fill your life and heart. Another obvious alternative…
