Humane Treatment of Pregnant Inmates
We commend the VA Board of Corrections for Proposing regulations that limit the current inhumane physical restraints on female inmates before, during and after childbirth. These restraints increase harm to the mother and her child. We support your efforts in making these regulations permanent. Thank you for your consideration.
