Radio Iowa reported today that the state has dragged its 12th “catch into its “safe haven” net.
Iowa DHS spokesman, Roger Munns, Bastardette’s favorite-ever baybee dump apologist, explained to the media that in order to protect the “privacy” of the parents, the state will not release the location of the dump-and-run. According to the always amusing Mr. Munns:
Part of the spirit of the law is to protect the identity of the identity parents [sic] and not hold them up to ridicule when they make the decision to do the right thing, so because of that we don’t identify where the child was delivered.”
So they admit it! Baby dumping is a government protection program designed to varnish reputations and help people look squeaky clean to the neighbors!
Iowa officials know that baby dumpers would be targets of community ridicule if they were exposed as the irresponsible and cowardly child abandoners they are, even though they’re doing the goverment approved ” right thing.” At this rate we should anonymize ministers who cheat on their wives, homophobic closet queers, and Ann Coulter.
And it gets better. Munns virtually thanks the Nebraska Fiasco for the free publicity it gave Iowa’s dump program:
Munns says he suspects all the news about the Nebraska situation caused people to be aware of the Iowa law, and he says that’s good because they don’t have money to publicize the law.
So the (mostly) desperate parents and caregivers who abandoned dozens of their teens and pre-teens in Nebraska hospitals in a last ditch attempt to secure state-withheld psychiatric treatment (or couldn’t afford to keep them) were nothing more than a funding stream to market newborn abandonment in Iowa.
