Rights of Pregnant Women

Special restrictions on pregnant women create a dangerous precedent for wide-ranging government intrusion into the lives of all women.

Women, due to their ability to become pregnant, have faced inappropriate treatment by judges and prison officials. Courts and prisons have imposed harsher sentences and have interfered with women's reproductive choices.

Pregnant women have been forced to undergo unwanted cesareans; ordered to have their cervixes sewn up to prevent miscarriage; incarcerated for consuming alcohol.

Punitive measures do not promote healthy childbearing; instead, they deter women from seeking necessary treatment and prenatal care.
