The article reports on the angel's cradle initiative of doctor Geoffrey Cundiff for troubled women who deliver unwanted babies in Vancouver, British Columbia. It states that the unwanted babies can be left in Saint Paul's hospital which will be handed over to the Ministry of Children and Family Development for adoption rather than leaving them in the dumpster. Meanwhile, mothers can reclaim their maternal rights if they can give the best situation for the baby and if permitted by the ministry.
