Protect Pregnant Women in Prison!!
The American Medical Association, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Public Health Association all support limiting the use of restraints for pregnant inmates. I commend the Board for proposing regulations limiting the use of restraints and urge it to make these regulations final.
