Modification of restraints on pregnant inmates

Please enact the modification of restraints on pregnant inmates. This is a merciful and important change to how the correctional system deals with its inmates.  Steps toward greater humanity to those in prison or jail should be taken wherever possible.

Thank you for your consideration of my views on this issue.
