California law and the U.S. Constitution require jails to provide health care for incarcerated persons, which includes reproductive health care. But across the state, we’re seeing that accessing adequate reproductive and pregnancy care in jails is often a frightening and traumatic experience.

Pregnant people who are incarcerated often receive biased, coercive information about their reproductive options, get substandard prenatal and postnatal care that endangers their health, and are denied reasonable accommodations that help ensure a safe and healthy pregnancy. 

That’s why we need AB 732, which improves the quality of the healthcare and accommodations pregnant people receive in California’s jails.
