And Another Thing...

Since Oklahoma is second only to Mississippi for female incarceration rate, I thought this was worth sharing:  How Does Somebody Have a Baby in Jail Without Anybody Noticing?" The Awful Plight of Pregnant Prisoners

The treatment these women have to go through is absolutely apalling. Access to competent and timely reproductive health care (and just health care, period) is the right of every human being. One does not stop being a human being when they are incarcerated.
