Boxes for abandoned babies proliferate in Europe

Unbelievable. But then, I must be getting old fashioned. Randeep Ramesh, "Spread of 'baby boxes' in Europe alarms United Nations" (The Guardian, June 10, 2012). And if even the UN is concerned, well ... it must be bad.

If the babies in question end up being adopted into a family that will give them love and acceptance that is one thing.

If it is just a sugar coated form of abortion it is another.

Are there any statistics that show the ulfimate fate of the children?
