Pregnant Prisoners in Labor and Delivery

I believe that all humans beings were created by the same Creator and all deserved to be treated with dignity and respect.

It it crucial that the unborn are protected from Conception to Natural birth.  It is very important that the Law protects the women who are pregnat in any circumstance.  As the mother of 6 I know the inportance of the well being of the mother and the child.  I urge you to protect especially the inmate women from any harm during pregnacy and delivery.  I shall not do to others what I do not want to be done to me.  Thank you in advance for your help.
