Abandoned baby bill signed

The sad part about it is that I interviewed several attorneys in Columbia regarding the Child Abuse Laws. The universal comment was "you need to talk to the legislatures and work on changing the laws."
The problem with creating more laws is this...as a parent, I have watched the news about children kidnapped or raped. I, like any other parent, does not want that to happen to my child. So we as parents say "Sure Mr.

today, they teach our children to learn 911. When our preschool children go to the phone and dial the only number they KNOW, then the authorities assume that parents are beating their children. Did you know you could get into a lot of trouble for a child who dials 911? It can
YES, ABUSE does happen. But according to the MO Department of Social Services 2000 report, the majority of calls placed were not determined to be "probable cause."
