Question 2: Shall the state representative from this district be instructed to vote in favor of legislation to allow a woman, or someone acting on her behalf, to surrender a newborn who is seven days old or younger, and who has not been physically abused, to a worker at a hospital, a safety officer at a 24-hour police or fire station, or an emergency medical responder at an agreed-upon location following a 911 call? Under the legislation, the woman and her representative would be immune from prosecution, remain anonymous if desired, not be obligated to give any identifying information, and be asked only to receive an optional medical history form to complete and return. The law would not contain any termination date or any state funding requirement.
