Tuesday afternoon another girl was dumped- DHHS offical number 36th /45th unofficial dump

This is the latest in a series of posts I have done criticizing Nebraska’s legalized child abandonment laws. You can find my earlier posts via my Nebraska tag.


Please see these two action alerts on what can still be done about the Nebraska dump law, there is still time to demand nothing short of a full repeal/age it down to Zero!


See the Omaha World-Herald article, Hall County teen is 36th ‘safe haven’ dropoff.

A 15-year-old girl has been dropped off at St. Francis Medical Center in Grand Island — the latest child left under Nebraska’s safe-haven law.

The Hall County teenager was taken to the hospital Tuesday afternoon by her guardian, a relative, says Todd Landry, director of children and family services for the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services.

She’s in a foster home now, Landry says.

She is number kid number 36 in the Nebraska DHHS official tabulation (link opens a PDF) but the 45th “safe haven” related case if you count the 12 “attempts” Marley and I have documented to date. These uncounted cases in the NE DHHS tabulation included “Self havens” i.e. kids who have turned themselves in under the safe haven law only to be turned away, 18 year olds and others.

Here is the Nebraska DHHS press release (link opens a PDF) about the incident.

While “debate” continues inside the Capitol’s halls, kids continue to be dumped outside the walls…

…and at least one teen whose parent attempted to dump her is still on the run. to the best of my knowledge she hasn’t been found yet. (I hope to find time to blog about her separately, later.)

Again, I urge readers to contact the Nebraska legislators and call for and end to all child dumping in Nebraska.
