Protect Pregnant Women and their Babies
Please, use common sense here. Restraining pregnant women has got to be dangerous to the mother and surely there is potential for trauma to her child at the time of birth. At the very least, it is inhumane. The AMA and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists support limiting the use of restraints. PLEASE PROTECT THE WOMEN AND THEIR BABIES.
