Note: In California, the Safely Surrendered Baby Law allows an individual to safely give up an unwanted infant with no fear of arrest or prosecution for abandonment as long as the baby has not been abused or neglected. The law does not require that names be given when the baby is surrendered. Parents are permitted to bring a baby within 3 days of birth to any designated hospital staff or designated fire station in the County of Los Angeles. The baby will be placed in a pre-adoptive home while the adoption process gets underway.
Note: Beginning January 2009, federal law allows sexual assault victims to obtain the rape forensic exam anonymously, without having to report to or cooperate with law enforcement.
