New York Is Illegally Shackling Pregnant, Incarcerated Women
By Juan Thompson
Today at 3:40 PM

The state of New York is illegally shackling incarcerated women during childbirth, according to a new report on reproductive justice from the Correctional Association of New York.

“Women continue to be shackled on the way to the hospital (even when they are in labor), during recovery (even within hours after giving birth and for long periods of time), and on the way back to the prison (even with waist chains just days after having a C-section),” the report said. New York passed an anti-shackling statute in 2009, but according to the Correctional Association, “23 of 27 women the CA surveyed who gave birth after the law went into effect said they were shackled at least once in violation of the statute.”

In many ways, the state of New York is abusing pregnant, incarcerated women all over again, given that 90% of all incarcerated women experienced sexual and physical abuse before heading to prison, according to the report.

facepalm_panda.gif No, in fact it's horrendous.

Quote:“Shackling causes physical and psychological pain. It heightens the risk of blood clots and limits the mobility that someone needs for a safe pregnancy and safe delivery. It can cause fetal death”, the Correctional Association’s Tamar Kraft-Stolar said."

An unborn baby is not a criminal, and this endangers both the mother and child.
