Protect Pregnant Inmates and Their Unborn Children

I support regulations to limit restraints on pregnant women in prisoners before, during, and after childbirth.  They are humane  rules that will help to ensure that the children are born properly and without any problems that could endanger or damage the children's lives and health.
