ALWAYS IN OUR HEARTS: THE STORY OF AMY GROSSBERG, BRIAN PETERSON, AND THE BABY THEY DIDN'T WANT an excerpt
Amy’s Law - Bill A-6, the "New Jersey Safe Haven Protection Act," was introduced on May 22, 2000. Jack Collins, as Acting Governor, signed it into law on July 7th. A-6 should be called "Amy’s Law," after Amy Grossberg, who, with the help of her boyfriend Brian Peterson, threw her newborn baby boy in a motel trash dumpster in Delaware. The Safe Havens Protection Act is supposed to give these girls an alternative to killing their babies. Under this law, a parent can anonymously deliver, or arrange the delivery of, a baby that appears to be no more than 30 days old, without expressing an intent to return, to a police station or the emergency department of a hospital no questions asked. That’s it. The parent just drops the baby off, walks away, and is no longer a parent.
Attorneys invoke Jewish law in case of accused baby killer to prevent her parents from testifying. The action by the attorneys for Amy Grossberg raises questions about the standing of halachah, Jewish law, vis…vis the statutes of a sovereign state.Brian Peterson Jr., 22, was arrested at Shea Stadium in Flushing, NY, during a game between the Braves and the New York Mets. He was 8 months into a 2-year probation term and a violation could have landed him in jail. Police say Peterson shouted obscenities at officers and tried to block the arrest of his friend, Raymond Maniaci, who was accused of throwing a bottle at Rocker as he jogged from the bullpen to pitch against the Mets. Rocker had been targeted by fans for insulting comments he had made about minorities, gays and women in a published interview.
