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.
