SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — As the overturning of Roe v. Wade continues to impact women, some first responders are highlighting a growing resource for those who may want to surrender a newborn. The Ohio Safe Haven Law allows parents to safely surrender their newborn child without fear of judgment or prosecution. That law includes police stations, fire stations and hospitals. For the past three years, a Safe Haven Baby Box has been attached to the Defiance Fire Department. The box sits on the side entrance to the department and has no security cameras nearby.
