Restraint of pregnant inmates
 

As a former Virginia Parole Officer and a current family counselor I strongly dupport the proposed regulations to restrict or cease he restraining of pregnant inmates for the safety of the child. While the safety of the correctional staff and other inmates is important, it is more important to protect the innocent unborn child.

 

Sincerely,

Rev. Michael Mills
