Brown Vetoed Anti-Shackling AB568

When a pregnant woman goes into labor in California prisons, guards chain her up, transport her to a medical facility in chains, and then chain her to a bed for the entire birthing process. This practice is a disgusting outrage, and would have been ended by this year's AB 568. Yesterday Governor Brown decided to veto this legislation. Unbelievable.
