MORNING LINE: ‘Safe Haven’ law revisited


  In Nebraska, officials are scrambling to change the state’s “Safe Haven” Law, which was intended to allow mothers incapable of caring for their newborns to drop them off at local hospitals without consequence. Trouble is, the law stated no maximum age, and some Nebraska parents have taken to dumping their ornery teenagers, too.

  A certain logic dictates that the law should be made more specific.

  But I know several parents with slacker offspring who still live at home in their early 30s. Try as they might, they just can’t seem to push them out of the nest.

  I’m guessing those parents would want the age limit raised considerably.
