Twenty-three states and the Federal Bureau of Prisons allowed women prisoners to be shackled during labour, a practice considered to be inhuman and degrading as well as potentially dangerous for the health of the mother or her baby.
New Mexico just changed it's law to end the shackling practice.
What is the practice in your state?
Why in the world would anyone do that?! It's not as if the woman could run away!
If this thread is based on the atricle from the Huffington Post,
I have to say this is one the poorest examples of credible journalism I have ever read.
No, wrong again, Dys. I read about New Mexico's change in the Albuquerque Journal. I never read the Huffington Post article.
