Restrict the use of restraints on pregnant inmates during labor and delivery.
The year is 2013 not 1813. The use of restraints on pregnant women who are inmates is barbaric. When you treat inmates as less than human they return to society worse than when they went to prison. The whole system needs to be looked at but this would be a small step in the right direction.
