I feel for the parents that have lost babies to these cribs... I have two children and I am blessed that they made it through childhood safely..now they are teens.. and more issues.. my issues is why is it that we as a society continue try to legislate things that can't really be legislated against?

seat belts laws - yes seat belts save lives, etc.. but people are still idiot drivers
helmet laws - yes helmets save lives but people are still idiots..
drop side cribs - how many millions of kids actually grew up and made it through life having been in a drop side crib..

are we going to to ban bikes, skateboards, swing sets, kids have died because of these things too..

we pass laws that are supposed to help make us safer and save lives.....I am not totally against doing this.. it's a function of government to protect it's citizens but for every life saved because of some law... another life is lost in spite of that law..

we have a society were everyone is liable for something.. but no one is responsible.. people are overweight, have diabetes, don't exercise.. is isn't their fault it's McDonald's fault for selling high fat food, etc..
