polonius 54 | 420 1 Dec 2012 #1Poland's 40 "windows of life" (where new mothers can leave unwanted newborns) are threatened by a UN ruling that every child has a right to know its parents. As an alternative to abandoning an infant in a rubbish heap or outdoors in the cold, women are able to discreetly leave unwanted infants in the windows operated by Catholic convents and leave with no questions asked. The 'windows' are glaa-doored cubiles in the otuside wall of a convent with a warm little bed inside. When the infant is placed therein, the nuns are alerted by a flashing light and turn the baby over to an orphanage for adoption. Yet another example of the Church saving lives.
