Removing Restaints on Women in Prison Giving Birth

I am astonished that this is even going on in modern America. This appears to be quite barbaric for a civilized country. I encourage you to lift the restricitons that require restraining a woman in prison during delivery. Just because a person commits a crime, it does not make them an animal.
