Russia Now Has Baby Boxes…

Baby Box in Japan...

The so-called baby boxes installed throughout Russia, like in Europe and Japan, are for mothers to anonymously leave the unwanted newborns, health officials said Monday…

The action is intended to provide sanitary conditions of unwanted children, instead of having “babies left in trash dumpsters,” officials said…

Five baby boxes have been placed in the territories in the south of Russia, Krasnodar and two more will be purchased shortly. Baby boxes – which cost about $ 10,000 each – were placed near the hospitals in the areas…

“So far no woman has left a child in them [the boxes],” said health department official Perepelkin Tamara Krasnodar…

He said women would not be prosecuted for abandoning their babies…

“Our goal is to save children’s lives,” said Perepelkin. “We have created baby boxes … in remote video cameras and security, “he said.

He said six women had been accused of killing their children or leave their children in danger, from January to September.

The project will begin to involve the Siberian city of Perm, Tomsk, Omsk, Novosibirsk Russia and the European city of Kirov.

In Russia, the Empress Catherine II was the first to open an orphanage. The establishment of Moscow had a maternity hospital for poor pregnant women members.
