Newborn left in baby box
A newborn baby girl was left in a baby box in the town of Jablonec nad Nisou on Friday evening. The baby, who is believed to have been born on the same day, is said to be in good condition. The authorities are waiting to see if her mother will not want to reclaim her before putting her up for adoption. There are now 41 baby boxes in hospital complexes around the country and they have so far saved 41 children who might otherwise have been abandoned out in the open or killed. However the institution still has plenty of critics who argue that they make it too easy to abandon a child.
