Dysfunctional Americana 14: Pomona, California

The so-called "Safe Surrender" facility at Pomona Valley Hospital. It might be more accurately called a very fancy baby dump box. The logo on the box (actually the door) is the same as that used for the so-called "Garden of Angels" cemetery. It makes you wonder what these people are really thinking when this same logo is at the top of each headstone in their cemetery.

(Pictures of the cemetery appear in a following entry.)

For a sober assessment of so-called "safe haven laws" that encourage the creation of peculiar spectacles like this, see this article at the Bastard Nation website. Also see the statement from the Governor of Hawaii vetoing such legislation there.
