Baby ‘dumping centre’ to open in China

Via Ninemsn, “Authorities in China have created a “baby dumping centre” where parents can anonymously abandon their children.

The secure facility, which looks like a small shed, is intended to allow mothers and fathers to give up their children in a way that protects the health of the unwanted child.

0212_chinababy_spIt is operated by the nearby Nanjing Welfare Centre in eastern China, where staff hope it will stop parents abandoning unwanted children in garbage dumps and parks, the Shangahaiist reports.

When a baby is left at the facility, an alarm is activated that alerts staff at the welfare centre about five to 10 minutes later.

“The house has constant temperature and humidity, and is equipped with an air conditioner, incubator, bed, thermometer … and some decorations,” Zhu Hong of the Nanjing Welfare Centre told the Shanghaiist.

“We do this for the sake of the baby’s lives – the parents might have to abandon them for unthinkable reasons but the children are innocent and have to be protected.”
