Restraints on pregnant and/or prisoners delivering
When I first learned of this about 3 years ago, I was beyond shocked. How could this be happening? Of course, no one I talked to in the general public even knew it was happening. Total disrespect for women!
I applaud the legislators and the other caring individuals and organizations who worked tirelessly to see this barbaric practice stopped. I hope as I read through the new regulations that they will be applied and that there will be stringent oversight to see that they are.
Thanks to all who perservered.
We do care.
