Michigan’s Safe Haven law featured in recent cable access channel story

After three recent cases of newborn children being abandoned in Michigan, HOMTV intern and Central Michigan student Erica Francis produced the below video to help educate the public on Michigan’s Safe Haven law.  The video includes an interview with Right to Life of Michigan’s Genevieve Marnon. 

Michigan's Safe Haven Law went into effect January of 2001 and has since saved the lives of some 120 babies, including 12 in 2014.

Under the state law, you can leave your baby with a staff member at any hospital, fire station, police station or any emergency service provider that's on duty as long as your baby is not more than 72-hours-old.
