New Mexico ping please...
Here is the story that lead to this story.
NMSP: Newborn baby found dead inside trash bag
That’s a good law.
They mean shitcan!
If you bring your cat/dog to an animal shelter, they get your name, address, telephone number, plus a donation. Plus they ask WHY you are leaving the animal.
There are no anonymous cat/dog dump places, where you place the animal on a ledge and walk away, with no questions asked.
The discrepancy should have sane people throughout the world yelling and screaming, but it doesn’t.
Do these idiots really think that people who were going to throw the baby into the trash are going to stop, think, and decide to bring the baby to a fire station instead?
Georgia has a similar law, drop the baby off at a fire or police station, no questions asked. Please don’t kill the child, give it a chance for a better life.

Iowa has had this law for several years and to date nearly 30 babies have been relinquished this way.
What is wrong with New Mexico? That state certainly turned in the wrong direction rather quickly.
