Many State Legislatures have enacted legislation to address infant abandonment in response to a reported increase in the abandonment of infants. 

Beginning in Texas in 1999, "Baby Moses laws" or infant safe haven laws have been enacted as an incentive for mothers in crisis to safely relinquish their babies to designated locations where the babies are protected and provided with medical care until a permanent home is found.

Safe haven laws generally allow the parent, or an agent of the parent, to remain anonymous and to be shielded from prosecution for abandonment or neglect in exchange for surrendering the baby to a safe haven.

All Mesa Fire and Medical stations and apparatus are clearly labeled as Safe Baby Haven facilities to comply with the law.
