Please pass HB 836


I support HB 836 because I value the health and wellbeing of mothers and children in this society.  Just because a woman is in prison should not disqualify her from a healthy labor and delivery.  Jails that have renounced this unnecessary practices have seen absolutely no increase in security issues.

Thank you for supporting this bill.
