Restrict use of restraints on pregnant inmates during labor and delivery
I urge you to provide more civilized conditions in jails and correctional facilities for pregnant mothers. Please restrict the use of restraints on pregnant women during labor and delivery. This will promote the health and well-being of a pregnant mother and her unborn child.
