Public Notice

A controversial Florida law requires mothers who put their babies up for adoption to publicly identify the fathers, or else publish details of their sexual contacts in the local paper. NPR's Phillip Davis talks to the law's sponsor, and then Tavis Smiley speaks with Wanda De Marzo, a reporter with The Miami Herald, and Charlotte Danciu, an adoption attorney who represents six women challenging the law.
