Giving birth to my daughter while serving time in prison was one of the lowest tenures in my life. As a woman, dealing with the reality of having a strange man, the Sheriff standing guard, gawking at me during the birthing process, in addition to being handcuffed to the bed still has traumatizing affects fourteen years later. Most horrifically, being separated from my daughter just 24 hours after her birth; while being hauled off to a concrete cell felt worse than death.

Because of my own experience, I’m committed now, more than ever to ensuring that women who have committed non – violent crimes, do not have to endure the humiliation and inhumane practices of the public prison system that I was unfortunately forced to experience. There are other alternatives, house arrest is another option for pregnant non-violent offenders. Join me in urging members of Congress, to support this legislation and engage in a bi-partisan effort to restore civility, decorum, and integrity to the United States Penal System.
