Please Limit Restraints on Pregnant Women
Please move to apply and make permanent these new rules limiting restraints on pregnant women, especially those about to give birth, giving birth, and immediately after birth. The current situation is untenable and barbaric. Women should not be restrained in this situation; it truly is cruel an unusual punishment.
