The Nebraska Safe Haven Laws have been a fervent topic of discussion during 2008. Rather than identifying that newborn infants (born to those women not wishing to parent) could be dropped off at a safe haven in the first day of life, there was inadvertently no specified end date in Nebraska law. To the surprise of many, children in teen years and from throughout the country were brought to Nebraska's doors. This article examines what that means for women and children through the lens of a feminist historian.
