Nebraska- As I said, even our unofficial statistics are low

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.


Today’s Omaha World-Herald carried this important story, Troubled families in limbo after law change.

Burried deep down in it is this revelation:

After getting help from Immanuel staff, seven parents and guardians who wanted to use the safe haven law ended up taking their children home, spokeswoman Kelly Grinnell said.

Which means that counting just these seven attempts from Immanuel Medical Center alone, the numbers go up.

Looking over Marley and my unofficial statistics, we caught several “attempted” dumps at Immanuel through media reports.

I do not know if the seven overlap with, or are in addition to the ones we found:
