Restrict the Restraints on Mothers
Please enact new rules that would take the shackles off of mothers who are incarcerated. These shackles put a physical as well as psychological weight on an expecting mother that's effects can bring much extra stress into what is already a tough situation for any expecting mother. By taking away these restraints, you are helping harmless mothers get much needed relief from extra burdens. This will be a very humane and much appreciated route to take.
