shackeling of pregnant women in labor or post partum recovery.
 

Dear Prison Regulatory Commission:

 Please adopt the Virginia Catholic Conferences recommendation regarding the unneccary shackeling of pregnant inmates during labor and post partum recovery. Please respect the dignity of the mother and child in this matter.  

 

Sincerely, 

Ruth Kulick
