What happenned to Europe's morality?
Well if people are going to leave babies on the steps in the cold, atleast its better to leave them in warm heated boxes for collection later.
But this is like treating the symptoms rather than the disease

In many jurisdictions in the US for a long time, infants may be left at fire stations or other municipal facilities in the same manner.
It is better than murdering them. India must adopt the same system to save unwanted girls.
Ok what happens to the babies later ?
Would they be raised under state's care or they would be up for adoption by issue-less parents ?
Call me cynical - but taking away the life of the infant is relatively better than abandoning it and let it grow on the streets enduring all the untold miseries.
What has the world come to
What happens to these babies afterwards?
1. There is no scarcity of childless couple in this world. Such people can adopt these kids and raise them as their own.
2. One doesn't become a parent just by giving birth. Many biological parents abuse their own kids Mercy Killing is an extremely controversial topic, and we must not justify the killing of somebody as delicate as a newborn under any pretext. Tomorrow we can say that it is better to kill a physically challenged person so that heshe doesn't have to suffer in this cruel world. Life is precious. Sometimes past matters less than the present, and wound of abandonment can be healed by loving adoptive parents, friends.
