This new thing is making me feel so much…well, WRATH. “Don’t want that fetus? Don’t abort it! How about go through all the trouble and anguish of giving birth, and then just put that baby in this box!”
The slots open to reveal “baby boxes”– heated, padded, incubator-type holes in the wall where, according to Safe Haven Baby Boxes Inc – one of the pro-life organisations behind the initiative – desperate mothers or fathers can deposit a newborn anonymously and walk away, reassured that it is safe. Once a baby has been deposited, an internal alarm alerts firefighters on duty to come and pick it up.
Why oh why do so many Christians get away with imposing THEIR superstitions on other people? (Rhetorical question, maybe.)
Plus, like a Guardian commenter says,
I can’t wait for them to start making the adult size boxes for all of the people that are out in the cold and need to stay safe and warm. Pro-life is pro-life right?! Oh wait, no it’s not, pro-life is just where you decide that someone should be brought into this world and then left to fend for themselves. Because pro-life doesn’t care if they get a decent education, decent healthcare, enough nutrition, etc. In fact, when it gets bad enough, pro-lifers even support the death penalty. Irony? Not really.
