A female inmate at the Central California Women’s Facility state prison is reported to be pregnant, not long after after the state passed laws allowing biological males identifying as transgender to be housed in women’s prisons.
In what probably isn’t a surprise to anyone, the incident has raised questions about whether or not housing biological males and females in the same space was such a good idea.
Following the groundbreaking January 1 policy change, the incident in question followed less than a year later at the women’s prison when a biological male felon was transferred to the facility.
According to the Post Millennial, around 261 inmates -nearly all of them biological males- have requested transfers, asking to be housed with biological females.
“We have now heard from seven different people inside CCWF that at least one woman, possibly more, is now pregnant after being housed with a male felon who was transferred to the women’s prison under SB132,” the Women’s Liberation Front advocacy group said in a Twitter statement.
“Conditions are described as ‘a nightmare’s worst nightmare’ by women incarcerated in California after the passage of @Scott_Wiener’s SB 132. Now, the system is bracing for a wave of pregnancies and increased violence in the facilities. #StopSB132,” the group added.
SB 132 was passed in the CA Senate last September.
