Call a Brooklyn Birth Injury Lawyer if Pregnant and Still Shackled
Despite the long-time ban on the practice of shackling pregnant women before, during, and after labor, a recent report states that some prisons are still doing this. Tamar Kraft-Solar, director of the Women in Prison Project (WIPP), told the Huffington Post that 23 of the 27 pregnant inmates that the WIPP interviewed are still being shackled after the law took effect. Some of the facilities visited by the WIPP include Bedford Hills, Albion, Taconic, and Edgecombe.
