Police searched Thursday for the mother of healthy newborn twins who were found abandoned in the vestibule of a church.
Illinois law permits parents to leave unharmed babies three days old or younger at hospitals, emergency medical centers, or police or fire stations. A church does not qualify, and authorities said the parents could be prosecuted.
"I'm glad the mother at least made an effort to put them in a place where they could be found quickly, rather than a Dumpster," said Dr. Steven Ross, who examined the twins.

I don't want to debate that either but my real point was birth control. How hard is this? What is it that people don't understand about it?
Chances are that the baby will be adopted by loving parents that want/need another child
But these things raise other issues and make news for a reason. Why are we abandoning our children?
This woman's circumstance we may never know but I believe in her situation she made the right choice but why did she have to make that choice? Why can't we take care of our own? This is the bigger question
They can sculpt their child to be anythingthey want it to be.
