Posted on September 8th, 2011 by

Both Minnesota and Wisconsin have safe haven laws that legally allow mothers of newborns to give up their children safely and anonymously…Phillip Nielsen, a social worker with the Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse, Wis., is a child advocate and writes policy for the hospital on complying with the state’s safe-haven law. Nielson said about 200 babies are relinquished using safe-haven laws each year in the country.
