They should make them bomb proof too. You know, like if you find an unattended package or baby you can throw it in the nearest box, and it's all good. Could do triple duty with compostables, because landfills.

I would rather be left in a baby box than left with a parent/s who weren't up for the job of parenting.

I do, however have reservations about the shoot where babies are then sent into a pit full of other dumped babies for disposal.

I think a spouse box would get more use.

I'll try anything once. Can you hold the slaw and upgrade me to curly fries instead?

Is it not common in Britain to be able to surrender unwanted babies at a hospital? I mean, what's the alternative to the box? Better than a baby dumpster.

They did this in a pilot program in Japan several years ago; I don't know if it continues. It was supposed to be anonymous, but it seemed like they always tracked the parent down in the end. One of the first "babies" left in a box was a mentally challenged toddler (or 5-year-old? much older than the original intention of the box, regardless.)
